"Solo. From the minor road to the west. From the start of the rough path to Caherconree (promontory fort) where there is limited parking. Followed path, which is marked on the ground with posts but is not marked on the OSi 1:50,000 map. Continued to summit cairn of Caherconree and on to Baurtregaum. Returned same way. Thick mist all the time and rain most of the time." - Baurtregaum, peter43, Jul 23, 2018

"Solo climb of Carrauntoohil via the Coomloughra Horseshoe. The climb took 5.5 hours car to car (4:30am - 10am). A small bit of rain early in the climb but mostly clear views of the route early on. Spent about 20 minutes on the summit trying to find the descent route towards Caher due to heavy fog. Good thing I had a compass with me and some directional notes!

"Continuation of route from The Big Gun. Eased over the bad step just south of the summit of The Big Gun, then easy scramble down a series of sandstone ledges to a narrow col. Then followed a path on a rising traverse on the east flank of the mountain to a grassy rake after the third pinnacle. Followed this steeply up to the summit. Continued to Maolan Bui. With KM and NP." - Cnoc na Péiste, marktrengove2, Jul 17, 2016
"Continuation of ridge walk from Maolan Bui. Headed south-west, taking in the minor top of Pt.926m en route. Then down to a broad col and easily up to the summit. Then descended steeply to a boggy col and up onto the summit of Cnoc na Toinne. To descend, took the zig-zag path down from a marker cairn 300m east of the summit into the Hag's Glen to join the eroded Carrauntoohil path north-east down the valley back to Cronin's Yard. With KM and NP." - Cnoc an Chuilinn, marktrengove2, Jul 17, 2016
