South Kerry Round? (Part III)
Since posting the suggested route I was contacted by pocarbuile here, a man who is very familiar with the art of tackling high summits at high speed in this and other countries.

His brother, a hardened mountain runner, reckons the route in Part I and II is too soft, easily doable within the 24 hours. If so, would add the extra loop suggested on the Fell Runners and IMRA forums, going across Beenkeragh ridge and picking up 4 further summits, descending to Coomloughra, before climbing again to Caher West and continuing as before.

At least I have found another project to tide me over!
