I first tried this on 18/04/2018 but the wind was so strong that I couldn't stand up when I reached the col. It even blew my glasses off and I lost them. 4 days later the wind was gentler and it was no problem. Up in 2 hours, down in 1hr 20min.IanHHill22/04/2018
This has to be one of the busiest mountains I have climbed the amount of people going up & down. Fabulous views of Clew Bay this has to be one of the views I have had from a the top of a mountain.philhythe06/08/2017

With all those people, followed the tourist route. Fair play to the folks who usually don't climb because they seemed to just be getting on with it and enjoying themselves.nickywood107/05/2011

Approximate date...as far as I remember, this is the first mountain that I summited! I was about 10 yrs old and on a family holiday to Westport house. It was a real adventure to summit the Reek with my family and the memory looms large in my childhood reverie! It instilled a real reverence and respect for mountains and perhaps helped to ignite my passion for adventure!Gerry the Ranger11/07/1987
