Just did this ridge in early April. The approach was so dry. We were so surprised at how dry it was for this time of the year. This is a great one to climb with a bit of experience. A rope comes in handy for the first portion of this (and makes for a more challenging route) but is not really needed after you reach the first scree's after 500-600 meters. The day we did this, we saw loads of people using the Devils Ladder and only one other group on this ridge. It makes you wonder....as this is just great and you can get to Carrauntoohil via the tooth. I'll keep coming back to this. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/2/comment/439/
