Yes it is a bit mad to upload this short ascent to Carrigshouk but I do so to enable the purists to compare my track to Wicklore's. I began at a little car park hewn from the slope (room for two cars max) beneath the steep face. Scattered on the ground were two empty ladies handbags, and assorted clothes. Unlike Wicklore, the fact that I might see thieves plundering my car, given the sight line from the summit to the car, did not afford me any particular comfort. Because the notion that I might bolt down the precipice at a hundred miles per hour to leap upon the malcontents did not seem overly practical. If I were a thief and saw me running down the hill like a banshee I would either wait and bate the b'Jeyes Fluid out of me, or, alternatively, gather the stolen goods, and leave with dignity. Anyway, I chose the particular car park because it's the nearest point to the summit. My plan was to take on the scramble up the steep face, and it worked out well. Ferns and foliage were still in winter sleep so I had no problem crossing the approach to the scramble, and then it was hands and feet working together in a pull up between the slabs to the nearby summit. A little bit of concentration is necessary to avoid falling off, but nothing overly taxing. A couple of cars slowed near my car, and it occurred to me that I ought to have brought a rifle to shoot at passing cars, just in case. The summit is great with views in all directions. But Wicklow is depressingly brown in April so I didn't tarry: a cunning lingerer chooses his targets carefully
