The Devil's Ladder is one of the standard routes for climbing Carrauntoohil, Ireland's highest mountain (1,038m). What looks remotely like a landslide or boulder field is actually the most direct route up to the summit. In good weather, the climbing on the rocks is a great adventure, which should be tackled only with sure-footedness and mountain experience. When it rains, the Devil Leader (who rightly bears her name) transforms into a waterfall, making the descent a very slippery and unsafe affair.Information on the routes on the Carrauntoohil can be found on the mountain rescue site: kerrymountainrescue.ie/carrauntoohil-route-descriptions.
