Snowy Bloody Bridge Dander
« on: January 31, 2019 »

Hey all,

I finally got a chance to head out and burn off that Christmas cheer. I was going to up Donnard from Bloody Bridge but after getting to the wall I decided against it, getting up would have been fine but getting down is when the tumbles happen. I got some great photos at the old quarry well worth a visit before we get our day of summer.

Great photos.  No shame in turning back, the skill is knowing when to make that call.  You made a good decision based on the conditions, no point putting yourself in danger and risk.  Looks magically though but slippery and icy.

I didn't want to clog up the post with pictures, but if anyone wants a look at the rest of the photos here is the album on Imgur :)

Excellent photos, The Mournes looks ethereal and other-worldly when its got a good dusting of ice and snow. Good on you for getting out and thanks for sharing the pics.

Thanks for sharing the photos. I didn't realise it was so snowy there until you posted them since the webcams seem to be offline at the moment. I went down on Saturday and had a great day out.

Hard not to look at the photo that looks like a staircase and think how bad it would be to slip at the top and smack your ass on every step on the way down.  Lovely photos!
