Dun Fiunary

(5 routes)

“On the summit of Dun Fiunary I had small capsules from Otago University Physics Department for a project on UV rays. The sealed capsules had to be left on the summit and retrieved six weeks later. I climbed the mountain at least 10 times, by at least four different routes, usually alone, though sometimes with Peter Ellen.” – Norman Hardie, 1992
