Onzy: Track 2951 in area near Tawny Rower, Sheeffry Hills (Ireland)
Sheeffrys Traverse
Length: 16.8km, Creator time taken: 4h59m, Ascent: 958m,
Descent: 1007m

Places: Start at L91990 69717, end at L82292 69961 9.7km W from Start

Standard romp over the Sheefrys in good company on a lousy day.

It is worth noting the descent: there is a spur off Barrclashcame NW Top which leads directly west to our second car at c. L824 698. This is the spur used in track 2729. However, this spur is quite steep at the top, and we found a better (easier, at least!) descent by heading north from the top where a more gentle spur curves around onto lower ground and to the road north of the parking space.
