Alternative Errigal Climb

He who fights and runs away…

The summit party with the other peak lurking cloud-bound behind!

The club Errigal (805m) Climb planned for the 29th July ended up climbing a rocky knoll (26m) in the beautiful sand dunes beyond Bunbeg.

You may remember that this was the weekend that a large number of cadets had to be rescued from the Mourne Mountains! With driving rain, low cloud and winds forecast to be gusting in excess of 50mph on the narrow Errigal submit ridge, a strategic retreat to the seaside was agreed on. A 6km ramble with a scenic wreck, undulating dunes (we should map this) and a golf course circumnavigation followed and a very pleasant time was had by all.

However that Mountain is still there – we may return!
