Another route walked with 12-15 year old scouts. This route is wet, boggy, potentially soul destroying and certainly tiring. The upside is a route taking in six of Wicklow's summits including the second highest. If you can organise a drop-off and collection you can walk without fear for your car and end at the Sally Gap. Bring gaitors, mucky bog-crossing experience and plenty of time! Navigation skill is very important in this often cloudy part of the world.
