We camped in Killarney on Thusday night to get an early start on Friday morning.
The plan was to take in the Coumloughra Horseshoe.We started at 9.30 am and finished at 5.30 pm.
It was a fine clear day with some of the best weather I have ever had for walking. We avoided the heat and had a lovely ,cool sea breeze for the whole day. We crossed the ridge to Carrauntoohil at 2.00 pm. The scramble down from Beenakeragh is over large blocks of rock but I didn't feel it was dangerous at any point. once on the ridge the going is on a very obvious path and the only really exposed point is where this path crosses The Bones, it is really necessary to take your time and be careful as one slip means several hundred feet of a fall.After crossing The Bones, there is a scramble up loose rock/stones on a very steep path. If you use sticks put them away before crossing this ridge , you will have to use your hands. However , this ridge must be one of the best for views in Ireland, I have seldom enjoyed a walk so much. The photo was taken on the path near the start of the ridge with The Bones in the centre just to the right of the boulders and Carrauntoohil in the left corner.The path can be seen (to the right) snaking its way through towards Carrauntoohil.It stays mostly to the right (west)of the ridge line and has three exposed parts.The longest and trickiest of these is under The Bones, where the path drops around the left(east) side for about 100 mtrs.
