Like denise-vosges we used Jim Ryan's book for details on finding the Zig-zag path. I put his coords into my GPS and they were spot on. We left the path into the Hag's Glen at V812 841 A and climbed the gentle slope to V815 841 B where we picked up the start of the zig-zag path. 2 hours after leaving the car we were at the top, at least an hour quicker than it had taken us to reach the top of The Devil's Ladder last April. We bagged the top of Cnoc na Toinne before returning back along the ridge and onto Cnoc an Chuillinn. Looking back we saw the more direct path...
