THE BLACK MARE ASCENT TO CARRAUNTOOHIL. 27th. Jun.’09
This is a straight forward route to the summit but I think only on a fine day and with clear visibility! It begins with a walk up the concrete road, so named because it is literally concrete that you are climbing for the first 15 mins. There is an udnerlay of iron underneath this mass of concrete. Some call it the Hydro road. Same route, if you fancy doing the Coomloughra Horseshoe.
The Black Mare Ascent is a very steep climb through a wide gully,
Emerging within 100m of the summit.
