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.
