Carrot Ridge remains for me perhaps the most enjoyable solo climb I've ever done in my life (c.1976). Absolutely superb.
Nice article. Classic route. Did it in 1969. Glen Inagh is a magical place.
After we popped into the Loch Inagh Lodge for a pint of slowwww poured Guinness amongst the oak panelling and fly fisher men. When I asked the barman if they had any crisps, he replied curtly 'Do we look like the sort of establishment that serves crisps.' Well as curtly as an Irishman can get, maybe more of a wry smile. Brilliant.
Then a couple of days drinking and mooching around Galway and the Burren. A great long weekend.
