John led the walk up to Trassey Track to Hares Gap and then round the back of Bearnagh before returning via Poolaphuca, a 10Km trek with a total ascent of more than 450 metres. Because of the particularly challenging conditions encountered on the day - rivers in spate, cold wind and very wet ground - it has now been officially promoted to grade 4. Well done to the twenty brave souls who took part and arrived back safely.
The chimneys on Chimney Rock
John and Dorothy led a group of 9 from Bloody Bridge with the intention of climbing Chimney Rock Mountain but on reaching the Bog of Donard cloud rolled in and reluctantly it was decided to postpone our climb until an even better day which would allow us to enjoy the spectacular views from the summit. That apart, it was another perfect day for walking - we managed 5.5 miles, climbed just a little short of 600 metres and we all returned safe and happy. There's no better way to spend a Thursday!
