Solo. From Carrauntoohil Youth Hostel. Macgillycuddy's Reeks. After following the ridge between Cruach Mhor and Cnoc an Toine and then on to Caher, a subsidiary top of Caher and Carrauntoohil. Scrambled along a rocky ridge to Knockoughter and Beenkeragh (3316'). The descent was by going towards Knockbrinnea and then down to Lough Gouragh to join the track to the Youth Hostel. Time: 7hr 50min. The weather was good. It was misty on and off on the summits.pwbellarby14/06/1987
