Once again an epic day on Carrauntouhill, Always the one that means the most to me, being my first mountain and always the one for the long and hard days when I needed them too, after probably 200 climbs of it now the appeal never lessens. This time was even more special, as Aoibhin and the bump made the journey to the top, we had perfect conditions and great fun, and got met some good friends along the way @brian_bateson from Climb it and Piaras from @kerryclimbing.ie along with the best tasting bite of food in the land at Cronins Yard and the chats with John and Esther, and even @patfalveyexplorer Later on. Just last week the mountain was harsh and wild and someone far fitter than I took the right decision to abandon half way up, so whoever you are if your thinking of a go, get good gear on, be fit for it, plan well, start early, make good decisions along the way, and go for it! But never underestimate how hard or hostile it can be on a bad day! I’ve abandoned many attempts but when it comes right it’s spectacular, the best possible medicine for the soul!
