Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  16 Dec 2011
To top out on The Bones, the highest point along the rocky arete between Carrauntoohil and Beenkeragh, one must cross part or all of the ridge. To gain access to this ridge refer to the mv short summary for Carrauntoohil. The start of the clearly defined path leading to the ridge lies about 100m SW down the shoulder from Carrauntoohil summit at V803 844 A. Drop down steeply NNW along it's line passing, on the way, the tops of Curved Gully, Central Gully and O' Shea's Gully, three established scrambling routes up from the Hag's Glen to Carrauntoohil. The climb up to The Bones (the high point of the Beenkeragh Ridge) is over rocky exposed ground and great care is needed in windy and/or wet conditions. The effort in getting there is rewarded by very fine views around the full Coomloughra Horseshoe walk, a circuit frequently used to climb Ireland's three highest mountains Caher, Carrauntoohil and Beenkeeragh, with The Bones, the fourth 3000 ft top, thrown in for good measure.
