Seven set off from Cronin’s Yard in low cloud and very gusty conditions.  We picked up our eighth member along the way. We proceeded through the Hag’s Glen, and began climbing up toward O’Shea’s Gully. However, by the time we reached the Second Level, just below Loch Coimín Uachtair, it was obvious that the wind speeds were becoming dangerous. So, we reversed direction and headed back. On reaching the main track, we did meet the other CMC group, and accompanied them back to the Cronin’s Yard Tea Room for refreshments.

There are no photos of this adventure – they were too busy coping with the elements!
