simon3: Track 2221 in area near Struicín, MacGillycuddy's Reeks (Ireland)
East Reeks Circuit
Length: 16.3km, Creator time taken: 5h21m, Ascent: 775m,
Descent: 771m

Places: Start at V88080 88811, Struicín, Cnoc an Bhráca, Cnoc na dTarbh, end at Start
Logged as completed by 1
This starts and finishes at Kate Kearney's Cottage and takes in three summits at the east of the MacGillycuddys Reeks.
The walk is fairly straightforward EXCEPT ON THE DESCENT at the south end of the walk to the Gap of Dunloe. While we did manage to get down using the route shown in good weather, we would not advise this in poor conditions. Our suggestions would be either to do the route in reverse, so going up the steep ground to Drishana and with better route visibility or to swing further south before descending.
