This, the “most attractive and exhilarating walk in the Galtees” was exceptionally exhilarating today. Six members braved the elements and had a fine day out of it. They chose the clockwise option, climbing steeply first to Cush. Halfway up Galtybeg, it became clear that the weather gods were not going to smile, and maps and compasses were much in evidence from then on. By the time they reached the summit of Galtymore they were fully kitted out in warm layers and raingear. Cold and navigation notwithstanding, they completed the route strongly and felt justifiably proud of themselves.
