Ascent Trip Report

Ascended Muckish from the southwest carpark. Bushwacked up the ridge where my girlfriend waited for me in the heather. Got to the plateau, interesting rocks all around. Walked over to the highpoint and took some photos of Creeslough and the rest of the Derryveagh mountains south-west of me. Decided to bushwack down and meet up with my girlfriend on the lower part of the ridge. Not a good move. Never saw the normal path up. Still a fun climb.
