Sligo's Royal Peaks guided hike

Easter Monday started bright and dry but it was not to last. By the time we reached the summit of Kings Mountain the winds were gusting over 125kph. That combined with showers of snow made for difficult progress and navigation. However we still managed to summit Slievemore and climbed upward to Spot height 597 on Benwisken. At this point we experienced sub zero temperatures with a wind chill of -9c. A unanimous decision was to cut short the final leg and make our descent. Thanks to all who participated without as much as a murmur. They probably were all too frozen to do so. .
