Climbed her on 2-Jan-2009 with a group of 10. Started out in good weather and visibility in Cronins yard. Made the summit moving nicely in 2.5 hours. Conditions on top were 5m visibility in freezing conditions. Had planned to head west and descend via the Zig-zags. Pulled back from this after travelling about 200m with some party members very cold at this stage. Even though I had been down The Bone in good conditions before somehow we drifted off the route down and ended up very west (left) of the intended route. Moral: be very careful up high when conditions detiorate and always keep consulting the compass to ensure you are on the right bearing, go slow and dont rush map reading no matter how cold everyone is. We got everyone down safely by descending slowly and carefully, but lesson learned (again!) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/6/comment/3502/
