Thanks, that's the bit of the route that concerns me. Should be a interesting day in the hills.

A friend and I done it (well nearly) the last time it was run. we got 6 out of 7 peaks. Binnian broke us! and after that lamagan and the walk back over to donard just seemed to much. we did absolutely zero training! so id recommend doing abit lol. the 2.30 cut off isn't to bad if you go at a steady pace. and 100% bring bug spray or a net because we got eaten alive!
signed up to do it this year again but may put out due to a bad knee.

A hiker with a heart of gold carried an injured lamb down Northern Ireland’s third highest peak after finding it suffering.

Wish I could, really keen to get to know the Sperrins better! But am in England this weekend, hopefully walking in the Malvern Hills.

Definitely need a wild camp soon, though.

Was thinking of heading to the Sperrins on Saturday if anybody would like to meet up, if the weather holds out the view from Sawel would be something else.

If you're up for it, let me know.

Cheers

garmin eTrex touch here
they are quite expensive but you can pick them up used for around £100 on ebay
then you can use the free maps, like openstreetmap etc

You could pick up a cheap Android phone or even a second hand one just for Viewranger. It would be much less than a dedicated Garmin etc.

Hi

I used viewranger on my android phone for a while and found it great, really user friendly but had to take it off eventually as my phone got older and memory was an issue. Would like to get back into using GPS again but not sure which set up to go for.

Looked at dedicated GPS units but are pricey, would like to go back to viewranger but my phone would die if i put it back on. What GPS set ups (if any) are you guys using?

Cheers

That was a considerable chunk of the Mourne Wall you done on Sunday. You would be well fit for the Sevens even now if you are able to do that.
That is the kind of long hikes I am on currently also as I actually am doing the wall on May 5th too.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply’s. Will be increasing the mountains and miles with each walk. On Sunday went from Deers Meadow to Bloody Bridge, following the wall, over Slieve Muck, Meelbeg, Meelmore, Bearnagh, Comnadgah and Donard.

On the day of the event if you start at 7am how tight is it to make the cut off at Ben Crom at 2.30?
