Carrauntoohil's Minder
Short Summary created by march-fixer,  29 Aug 2013
This lovely peak is the gate-keeper to Carrauntoohil. It is part of an excellent route to summit Carrantoohil via the two Knockbrinnea tops to the north east or even via Stumpa Bharr na hAbhann to the north west. Though it has quite a rocky top, there is no difficulty in attaining the summit.

Getting there it is either a straight haul up from Knockbrinnea (W) or on the other side it is a delicate traverse of The Bones along the Beenkeragh Ridge from the col with Carrantoohil. The only other sensible approach is via Stumpa Bharr na hAbhann to the north west.

There are 360 degree views from this summit. The cross on the summit of Carrantoohil is tantalisingly close, that is if the mist allows sight of it. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/2/comment/4762/
