A variation on OptO's track 2100 which takes a clockwise direction and passes west of Glas Lough on the descent. I had originally intended to walk anticlockwise, which means the road walk of 6k first; however the weather was good at the start and was forecast to worsen, so I opted to take the hill in the dry and suffer the rain on the road!
