Coming from Carrauntoohil onto the ridge for Caher (An Barr Caol), we met a rotund ruddy cheeked sheep farmer loping along in just t-shirt & shorts, with his trusty sheepdog. After enquiring politely as to our route, and whether we'd gone over the top of the tooth or around, he proceeded to amble in casual fashion off the ridge onto the almost sheer slopes on the western side of Carrauntoohil ! He had said he came up on average once a week, so I'm sure he knew what he was doing - wish I'd taken his photo ! Here's the first peak (983), I think - we were too busy watching the progress of the 'One man & his dog' team to pay attention. This part of the horsehoe is quite easy, with great views back down into the Coomloughra glen, and of the ridge up to Beenkeragh. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/3/comment/657/
