Worth the long walk in
by AdrianneB  28 Aug 2016
Had a perfect day for an ascent of Carrauntoohil via Caher from the Hydro track on Wednesday. Great walk. Wasn't expecting much of Caher as it was just a way to get to the main prize, but well worth a walk in it's own right. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/3/comment/18627/
