Out and back route to Sturrakeen over both Slieveanard tops en route.

I looked at the possibility of making this a circular walk, but the only real options given my start point were dropping to the road on either side of the range and having a long road walk back. So I wound up making what is perhaps the traditional start to a traverse of the entire range (As illustrated in track 2118), getting my three hills and then turning around and walking back.

Nonetheless a nice walk - good terrain made for fast and easy walking.

One possible way of taking in the same three hills would be to ascend from the north side, perhaps from the old Ballydavid Wood hostel, although this also would probably involve some backtracking.
