Carrauntoohil
The sisters, and their young decide, we will climb a mountain. Grand. Which one? The grand one, the ‘sickle’, of course! Of course! Nay-phews, Kean, Jimmy, John, and Neill, with their Mums, bring along one Dad, (Niall) and friend Mike, to climb Carrauntoohil, in Kerry, after the Easter break. One or more of this party had never climbed a mountain before and picked this, as their first? It’s in the genes, this logic, not the mountain walking kudo’s, that hang’s out in other genes, and makes for great adventures. One or two of today’s team has polished off Carrantouhill before. One included it along with SlieveDonard, Snowdon (Wales), Skafell Pike (England) and Ben Nevis (Scotland) in one day, in a time of 16 hours and 16 minutes, when he,Niall Kavanagh, along with Ian McKeever and Cathal Gregg from Galway, and LorcanSweetman from Wicklow, climbed the five highest mountains in Britain and Ireland to enter the record booksby shattering the then world record for the Five Peaks Challenge on Saturday June 26 2004.(Actual climbing time for their record was an impressive 12 hours and 30 minutes with the rest of the time spent in helicopters between climbs.) So, how did today’s party do? Well nearly as well, I will have you know. The two youngest, John and Neill, broke the day’s record, with the next youngest, Kean and Jimmy a tie in second, the sisters, of course were outstanding and the men, well given that there were no helicopters they didn’t do too bad either.

Summit Summary
Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 5 days ago.
