Climbing the Reek

Normally, it takes about two hours for the average person to reach the summit, and one and a half hours to descend. It is advisable to take sturdy footwear, rain-gear and some water. Climbing sticks are available to rent or buy just outside the car-park by Campbells or in the tourist centre.
