Having managed to stand up AND look through a viewfinder whilst on top of The Bones, I only succeeded in proving that exposure is really difficult to capture on camera! Ah well. As noted by others, if continuing to Carrauntoohil, the path moves over to the left side here, which seems illogical (because that's the really steep side) until you actually see it.
