Route from Cronin's Yard, up the gullies behind Cummeenoughter to the Bones, over the ridge to Beenkeeragh and down from the col between Beenkeragh and Knockbrinnea.

Note I don't identify the gully involved, I confess that's because I'm not entirely sure. My intention had been to ascend to Cummeenoughter, from where there is a choice of 3 gullies, curved, central and Brother O'Shea's, heading towards the col between Carrauntoohil and the Bones. I had identified the latter gully as being the most appropriate. However, I was tempted by the appearance of an obvious gully just beofre the lake, which I now suspect to be Curved Gully. I ascended this for a bit which involved a fair bit of pulling myself up with my arms before an obvious break appeared to the right, through which I escaped to a less confining gully to the west, probably Brother O'Shea's.... Central Gully wasn't at all obvious...

The descent from the col is straightforward, a little bit of to-ing and fro-ing to avoid crags and scree/boulder fields, but easy enough and with stunning views of the Hag's Tooth.

NOTE: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 4h 0m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
