The climb to cahers west top via coomloughra glen is fairly easy until the final 200 meters or so where it gets nicely steep and the mountain demands a little effort but then your there and the rest is easy caher and even carrauntoohil after.
The views into the glen are wonderful, carrauntoohil and beenkeragh sweeping sharply downwards and their airy ridge inbetween Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/5/comment/4141/
