I love the Reeks ridge route, having done it many times over the years, but for my money the Coomloughra horseshoe offers the best ridgewalking value in terms of reward for effort available in Ireland - the first view of the ridge to Carrauntoohil with An Barr Caol in the background heading off towards Caher just takes the breath away. This photo highlights Carrauntoohil Tooth (959), which can provide a bit of scrambling if desired (by traversing to the col rather than descending & reascending via the obvious path). It was enjoyable in bright sunshine, but I'm sure could be pretty challenging in misty &/or windy conditions. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/2/comment/653/
