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.
