Excellent scrambling
An Garbh or big gun
I visited the reeks yesterday with a work colleague Mr James Moore. They are now sadly denuded of snow but still beautiful. We decided to do the Lough Googh horseshoe. this is a fairly short circuit but involves 1200mtrs of climbing and traverses the Cnoc na Peiste ridge. This is a very pleasant grade 1 scramble. It was James' first time doing this type of thing and he professed to enjoying himself. The day was dry and a bit windy so a good day on dry rock was had by all. We got back to the car and changed our clothes just before the heavens opened. Lucky or what????.
