Corrán Tuatháil

Date: 22nd May 2004
Submitted by: Columba McLaughlin
Myself and a few students went to Kerry on our annual pilgrimage to savour the delights of Corrán Tuatháil. The weather was great and the sun shone all day. We took the scenic route up through the three hanging valleys. In the two higher of these there are ample scrambling and bouldering opportunities. We availed of these. Eventually, we ascended O'Shea's Gully and then to the summit. Absolutely brilliant. We then crossed the summit ridge of the Corrán Tuatháil - Bhein Caorách Áreté (no cowering on the lower path) and descended the Bheinn Caorách Ridge. All followed by a nice few pints and a good dinner in Kate's - luvely jubbly. Slán go fóill - Columba McLaughlin
