Route taking in the 3 Sugarloaf Mountain tops and the 3 Nareera tops. Parking is at V849 511, at the bottom of a mountain track which takes you to almost 400m (with thanks to Liz50!).
As always in the Cahas, walking in straight lines is impossible as the contortions in this track illustrate. This is hard ground and progress is slow, not least because of the many Caha benches which cut across your course and need regularly to be outflanked.
From Nareera NT east towards the Sugarloafs is particularly tricky - it is arguably better to return almost to Nareera itself before heading east.
The return track from the Sugarloaf headed more north that the outward track; this was an attempt to intercept the rerouted Beara Way without having to reclimb Sugarloaf Mtn WT, and was probably an error in that I lost more height than I expected and encountered some even rougher ground.
All of the 3 New Arderin Begs in this track needs positional improvement - the gridrefs used are map-derived and thus 6-digit rather than 10. Unfortunately, while I ensured that I stood on the highest point of each, I did not record the gridrefs.

NOTE: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 3h 20m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.

* Note: A GPS Height in the elevation profile is sourced from the device that recorded the track. An "SRTM" height is derived from a model of elevations for parts of the earth. More detail
