This morning I got up at 3 (Sunday morning !)

My hike started at 5 from the Zigzag in the Glenmalure Valley Co.Wicklow Ireland.

After 2 hours and 20 minutes, I arrived at the top of Lugnaquilla.

It was still quite windy after storm Jorge the day before. I, originally, had planned to bivouac the night before but , as too windy , not possible.

Temperatures = – 3c with a wind chilled of – 13c
