Share this


Winter well and truly returned to Kerry last weekend and added nicely to the challenge of our guided ascent of Corrán Tuathail….There was 3 tackling the climb via “O’Sheas” gully and boy did they really “Experience The Adventure” with KerryClimbing

….From below the white on the summits looked only a dusting but how wrong we were!!! As we exited the shelter of O’Sheas  and onto the Beenkeragh ridge we were quite surprised by the biting stiff breeze and the impressive covering of snow….The 3 gang were excited, amazed and delighted to finally make it to the highest point in Ireland in such unexpected wintery conditions..

Congrats and well done to Jay, Maria and Michael on their first and hopefully not last, ascent of this magnificent mountain…We descended by the “Zig-Zags” a nice easy gentle track which gave them stunning views as we dropped back down into the “Hags Glen” and made them fully appreciate the sheer scale of the mountain they had just climbed and the impressive route they had taken to the top!!!
