jackill on Cnoc na Toinne, 2004

Cnoc na Toinne just right of centre as viewed from the top of The Bone under Maolan Bui. The top of the Devils Ladder is just visible to the right of centre with Carrauntoohil covered in cloud behind it. The Bone makes is a much easier way to descend from the ridge than The Devils Ladder - it has a fairly distinct path all the way down (look for the iron posts and the line of stones) and you're unlikely to get hit on the noggin by loose rocks.

Not to be underestimated
by Kennyj  3 Sep 2015
Climbed this one on the descent of Carrauntoohill on Tuesday while on a short break in Killarney,spectacular views far and wide while going up.Walked across the plateau to a small cairn about half ways across marking the start of the ZigZags and made my way down the winding track to the Hags Glen below.

Alternative Descent Of Carrauntoohil With Bonus Views.
by Aidy  2 Aug 2014
Coming down from Carrauntoohil, the clouds which had obscured the views from that summit, started to clear a little, so instead of descending the Devil's Ladder, I made for the top of Cnoc na Toinne, and went down via the Zig Zag. I was well rewarded by magnificent views in brief windows through still fairly thick cloud. Probably a better route than the Devil's Ladder, especially on the way down, even without the added bonus of the views. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/23/comment/17584/

The poor neighbour
by Colin Murphy  25 May 2015
Set where it is, slap bang in the middle of the reeks, Cnoc na Toinne mostly proves a disappointment in terms of its aesthetic, as in contrast to its neighbours the summit is a simple grassy mound unmarked even by a solitary stone. Still, it is a great viewing point for the Hag's Glen. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/23/comment/18002/
