Ascent of the Reek


Croach Parick, about 2,500 feet; this is the mountain on which the saint did Lent, 441AD, also from wich he expelled the serpents and other unsavory things, etc.

I did not follow these rules exactly; nor did I see anyone else doing anything but praise the view and curse the steep scree and talus trail...

The pilgrims' trail, from the pass

Pilgrims must not trash the mountain!

The summit chapel

Clew Bay from the summit

Fields of peat on the other side
