Stories, information and comments from Monsal Head climbers
Story by Sean Murphy from Sheffield, United Kingdom, submitted on 16/06/2013
A short but steep climb from the valley up to Monsal Head. The climb is tree lined so you don''t see much until you get to the top at Monsal Head where you can enjoy the view - and an ice cream!
What always gets me about this climb is that Monsal Head is busy and the lung busting part at the top is always lined with tourists who think you are mad as you try to give them the impression you are enjoying it, by smiling, whist your lungs fly out through your nostrils!
