Last stop on the circuit of Coumloughra (or first, depending which direction you go) is Caher. There are three tops to Caher, and in the mist it's quite easy to miss one of them if you're not paying attention! Also, be careful on your way up from the Carrauntoohil side - the path takes you quite close to the cliff edge. The picture shows the three peaks shrouded in mist, taken from near the summit of Carrauntoohil. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/3/comment/509/

One of the truly relentless slogs, but a very pleasing climb. Once up Caher, Carrauntoohil is easy. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/3/comment/157/

On the way back from Carrountoohill, Caher ahead to climb, if you are uneasy about heights do not look to the right. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/3/comment/2177/

Climbed caher last sunday 2oth sep on route to carrauntoohil from coomloughra glen and the hydro road-(the steep incline at the start a great warm up) .Our intention was to do the horseshoe but heavy cloud decencended once we reached carrauntoohil summit so we thought it prudent not to attempt the beenkeragh ridge.

With the sun going down and the clouds passing by, this is looking very dramatic. On our way to Caher on the 25th of November, with less sunlight left due to the wintertime change. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/3/comment/4243/
