One Of The Best Walks In The Country
by Aidy  27 Dec 2016
I was making my way around the Coomloughra Horseshoe, having approached from the Beenkeragh direction, and the high wind was making me feel I wouldn't be able to complete it. It was particularly bad up on the ridge, and I dropped below it on the western side where possible between Beenkeragh and the Bones. I found that this stretch wasn't too bad with care, and by by-passing the Bones and then doubling back from the far side I was able to reach the top, although in the wind I didn't risk standing up on the summit, being content to crouch within reaching distance and lay a hand on it! I pushed on a bit further, descending steeply on the east side of the ridge towards Carrauntoohil, but the wind really was threatening to fling me to my death now! I retreated and retraced my steps back along the ridge, past The Bones to another prominent rocky outcrop, and from there I was able to descend off the ridge on the western side towards Coomloughra and out towards the Hydro Track. It was a bit disappointing not to be able to complete the horseshoe, but it was still one of the best walks I've ever had. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/7/comment/18739/
