Tim_Crooks: Track 1707 in area near Silsean, Dublin/Wicklow (Ireland)
Silsean to Sally Gap
Length: 19.5km, Creator time taken: 6h 8m, Ascent: 1043m,
Descent: 863m

Places: Start at O01272 03498, Silsean, Moanbane, Mullaghcleevaun, Mullaghcleevaun East Top, Duff Hill, Gravale, Carrigvore, end at O13043 13068 15km NE from Start

Cross the 7 summits from Blessington to THe Sally Gap - Start at the forest entrance to Silsean and scramble through a crowded Forest, gradually make your way up the Slopes of Silsean, then cross to Moanbane, Turn Eastward to Billy Byrnes Gap and then up the steep side of Mullaghcleevaun. Between here and the East top is the half way point. After East Top the Decents get bigger and the heather makes the walk tougher then the maps would suggest with Duff Hill and Gravale a long ascent to the summit. The final summit Carrigvore is easier than the previous two which is noce as your legs will be heavy. At just under 20Kms not the longest route but with over 1,000 meters of ascent and nearly the same in decent it is hard going.
