Slaughter The 10th
The child of prague lived up to its reputation once more and delivered a glorious day despite the gloom mongering from Banbridge direction.
Dan Duffy was up early and had a lap in before we started just to make us feel bad . Al arrived late but caught us up just as we arrived at the mast for the first time. The girls got a bit frisky at this stage so we headed straight for cairn number 1 where we were met by Mr Drone AKA Ross McLaughlin . Down to the Gully where a few fallers managed to escape my lens.
Second Lap up by Fiddlers and The glen is a tough one , but then we are all tough except Mr Robbie who was saving himself for France , enough said . A moments respect for poor John Duffy at this point , went down the road to avoid the dangerous mountain descent . Braked to avoid a dog and ended up in casualty with a wrecked AC joint. 🙁
Third Lap up Fallow and round by tunnel and the legs were getting tired , despite this quite a few clear rounds on Mast Climb , impressive at this stage of the day .
Last lap , the dreaded switchbacks, and a clear round here gets a you a position in the hall of fame , alas no one up to the mark although Doc Lewis damn close.
Handshakes all round and lots of back smacking , home by the glen to a well deserved rest for some the bar for others , sore heads to match the sore legs today methinks. Route Here if you want to give it a go.
All Images here , far too many to label .
