From Lislebaine to Hydro car parks
by nkenealy  10 Oct 2013
I loaded Track 2390 for this walk. Started At Lislebaine car park ( V 82743 87307 B ) and take a path from a gate on uphill site of car park near entrance. The trail is marked as Lislebaine loop which is an immediate left after the stile. Eventually this path joins the path coming from Cronin's yard which is slight lower down. Continue on up the Hags Glen and eventually Devil's Ladder is visible as a gash in the mountain. The beginning of the ramp for the zig zags which is off to the left near a very small waterfall. Get up on the ridge above following zigs zags which start about halfway up. Got to the top of Cnoc Na Toinne at 845 metres but had to go down again to the top of Devil's Ladder which is at 730 (V80686 83663 C). Only 300 up to the top of Carrauntoohill with lots of people on this stretch. To get to Caher from summit of Carrauntoohill went south to drop down to about 950 metres to then turned West towards Caher ridge. Wind was blowing from South West so it was pushing is into the mountain and it felt safe since. Any slip along that path could mean a fall on a very steep slope. You only see over the edge of the cliffs on the right in a very few places. From Caher we went on to Caher West Top and eventually the contours got wider and the slopes got easier as we made our way to the Hydro Car park (V77213 87137 D) Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/3/comment/15215/
