Started this walk at 6:50am with intention of taking my time getting to the summit. As my wife wasn't with me on this walk I motored on reaching the summit in about 2 hours. It isn't an easy climb up. As you get closer to An Cabar there are steps which just seem to go on forever. This had to be the hardest bit of the ascent. As I approached the summit of An Capar I broke through the clouds and I was given the pleasure of some glorious views of what looked like cotton wool resting around the peaks that you could see miles away.
I am unable to upload photo's shame.
The walk its self is well worth doing if only to say you have done it but the view is breath taking.
The climb down is still challenging with the steps having to be carefully negotiated.
