Airy step off on the Big Gun top, but once across the remaining ridge needed some care but nothing too tricky.kenmorti17/07/2016
from the Big Gun, cutting to L of main ridge for a while until Cnoc na Peiste. MT's final Furth celebrated in song and then on to easier terrain. Still in cloud.niallp17/07/2016
Continuation from The Big Gun. Eased over bad step just south of the summit, then easy scramble down to col. Then followed path on south-east flank to a steep grassy rake, and thence up to summit. Continued to Maolan Bui. With KN and NP.Man of Kernow117/07/2016

f/a, s/a for malign bui, croc na peiste, the big gun, & cruach mhor, 2 in party, hot & sunny with a breeze, 8hrs approx, 14 km approx. another sunny day, from cronins yard, track then path (priests path?) up onto the shoulder & croc na toinne. along the ridge taking in the tops, good ridge walk, from croc na peiste there is some good scrambling, ridge narrows with some scrambling, choice of a short wet descent to north and reascent back to the ridge or a short step in the ridge. from the big gun, turn the over hang by a steep descent on a path, first large block can be turned by a short descent of a damp tight corner on the east side, clambering around its base to regain the ridge. either take to the crest with several steep down climbs or take a faint path on the west side. this ridge is best tackled coming from cruach mhor rather than from the big gun, this gives the option of tackling the short vertical sections or avoiding them, rather than suddenly arriving at the top of them. desrum doodle 08/04/2015

On a walk from Cronin's Yard to tackle the remaining summits on the McGillycudy's Reeks. After easy ridge walking from Cnoc na Toinne, I had plenty of time to savour the notoriously challenging narrowest section of the reeks. The view from this summit was fantastic and on a fine and increasingly sunny day I could take my time plan my approach to the ridge ahead from here.pwheeler24/05/2011

Solo. From Carrauntoohil Youth Hostel. After Cruach Mhor I went along the ridge of Macgillycuddy's Reeks. This is at first a rocky scramble passing over Bearna Rua (3159') and Knocknapeasta (3190'). Continued to Caher and Carrauntoohil before descending to the youth hostel. Time: 7hr 50min. The weather was good. It was misty on and off on the summits.pwbellarby14/07/1987
