Three ridge walk 2010

On sunday about 14 went on the Killarney Mountaineering Club walk of the Three Ridges. This involves climbing thr Hags Tooth ridge, then down to the first level in coumeenoughter and up to the Heavenly Gates for the climb of Howling Ridge, then from the summit of Carrauntoohil cross the Benkeeragh ridge and back down via Knockbrinnea. Variable cloud but dry weather made it an enjoyable day out. It had been a while since I had been on Howling and it was as much fun as always. There were a few rock virgins but with the security of the rope they all made it up and enjoyed themselves immensely. I must do this climb more often.
