Descent: 827m

Logged as completed by 1
This route takes in the following summits: Knockastakeen, Greenane West, Greenane, Farbreaga. Follow the "Lough Muskry" signposts from Rossadrehid to the car park (start of the track). A lot of the height gained in climbing Knocknastakeen is lost in the decent to the coll before tackling the real climb to Greenane West. Once the ridge is gained, it's plain sailing to Greenane and Fargreaga.
