This is as close as I have ever come to Mount Errigal in Donegal. I have skirted around it so many times but today was the day I was almost tempted to climb it.
The problem was I had not packed my crampons or pitons and it would have been too cold to bivouac half way up from base camp as I had also forgotten my tent.
Don’t you just love all this mountaineering terminology. Maybe I will leave climbing it until winter has passed and I can summon enough experienced RedBubbling mountaineers to organise an expedition. On the other hand I could call in a team of Irish navvies to erect some scaffolding. There will be an endless supply of Guinness and Bailey’s Cheese cake at the Base Camp for the descent.
Please contact me if you would like to be included in this expedition.
