From Kate Kearney’s Cottage along the ridge to Carrauntoohil and then anti-clockwise around the horseshoe, before heading down to Cronins Yard. Ideal weather for it, at the start below 300 meters was cloudy but we were above it fairly quickly and there were perfect views there. One part of the first ridge was really slow and pretty much rock climbing, the rest we moved fairly well. The last downhill before we came up to the zigzags was slightly too steep to run downhill which was a shame.
Power hike up to Carrauntoohil from Devils ladder, passing a lot of people out. Went around anti-clockwise which was the wrong decision. The technical bits were downhill which we couldn’t have run, the bits we could have run were all the uphill on the way back.
Plan was originally to go back along the ridge again but it’s was clear we wouldn’t have enough daylight, so just went back to cronins yard via Devils Ladder
