incawest has beaten me to it, but we somehow ended up on the same false path down the Bone. We did the reverse route on 03 Jan 2009, up the zig-zags and down The Bone, but we were toasty warm thanks to the flask of coffee and multiple fleece layers. The summit of Maolán Buí was clear on our first arrival, but after a detour to bag Cnoc na Péiste the mist had descended on our return. According to my GPS we started off down the right path, but veered off at V831 839 A. This path just gets steeper and steeper. It must disappear over the cliffs below at some point. Once we realised our dilemma we made a trouser-staining traverse back to the ridge and picked up the proper path. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/6/comment/3504/
