Donegal Winter Mountains.

 The two winters in Ireland of 2009 & 2010 were the harshest in living memory and as such transformed our mountains into a true winter wonderland. The mountains of Donegal became a mini Alpine mountain scape with perfectly frozen waterfalls forming immaculate vertical cascades of ice. The North faces of Slieve Snacht, The Poison Glen, Maum Lack, Errigal, Muckish and The Bingorms were transformed into a winter mountaineers play ground. Over 50 new winter routes were climbed the length and breadth of Donegal in immaculate winter conditions during the winters of 2010 and 2011.
