Short Summary created by Onzy,  10 Apr 2015
Cnoc na Toinne is an often overlooked saddle shaped peak nestling among giants of 900m+; nonetheless, at 845m it is higher than many more noted tops, including Mangerton, Nephin and Mweelrea. Given its position, it is rarely climbed by itself, but more usually as part of a traverse of the Reeks Ridge, in either direction. From the more usual, east to west direction, it is the last peak before the descent towards the top of the Devil's Ladder and the climb to Carrauntoohil.

The top of the zig-zags, probably the easiest route onto this side of the Reeks, is about 350m east of the summit, along its ridge. Given the current state of the Ladder, the zag-zags are a more sustainable route to Carrauntoohil itself; however, as you must then descend some 150m to the head of the Ladder before beginning the final climb to Carrauntoohil, it does add to the overall ascent. The views from the zig-zags however, more than compensate. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/23/comment/4783/
