Picture: From Cnoc an Chuillin

On 29th April 2006 I walked the Eastern Reeks. I started from Cronin's farmhouse and came up the Hag's Glen. Cloud cover seemed set to deny me the views that I hoped for but as I reached the top of the Devil's Ladder sunshine broke through and there were some fantastic cloud inversion vistas to enjoy. This is from Cnoc an Chuillin looking across at Caher, Carrauntoohill and Beenkeragh. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/8/comment/2310/

The summit of Cnoc an Chuillin just visble in the clouds to the right of centre with Lough Comin Moir Mountain in the centre of the photo as viewed from the summit of Maolan Bui. On the extreme left you can see the stoney track which leads all the way back to the Devils ladder and points beyond if you've got the energy.
