Geocache Description:

A short walk up a mountain in Wicklow offering great views.


ok, so the cache itself is not all that fancy, but it is situated on top of The Fancy Mountain, or Luggala, as it is also known. From the summit there are wonderful view of Lough Tay and the Guinness Estate in the valley below. The drive from Dublin to the cache along the Military Road is a great way to see the beauty of the Wicklow Mountains and is recommended.The mountain can be climbed without much difficulty and in about an hour from the car park at N53 07.060 W6 18.105. From there there's a fairly obvious path to the summit. Once at the summit the view on the valley below is breathtaking, though caution is to be taken due to the steep cliffs on the eastern side of the mountain. The cache is situated well back from the cliffs, so it is not neccessary to approach them. Hopefully it shouldn't be too hard to find the cache, but it might be a good idea to bring a copy of the cache spoiler photo.

Update: 19-10-04 - I developed the pictures from the disposble camera and uploaded them. I'm not sure who's in which photo, so if you see yourself in any of them, please let me know!
