Mangerton on New Years Day 2010

Mangerton looked majestic on New Years day being covered with a heavier blanket of snow and ice than had been seen in over 30 years. On a beautiful clear day the temperature and the base of the mountain was -5 degrees celsius at 10 am when we commenced our climb. My friend and I had quite a struggle but made it to the summit eventually. Conditions were extremely slippery with thick layers of very hard ice but the views made it all worth while. In glorious winter sunshine the Devils punchbowl corrie lake, The Horses Glen and the Reeks mountain range all looked magnificent.
