This track is based on Onzy's one, but goes in the reverse direction and takes in the cairns at the edge of each top. My GPS unit tells me that we spent 2.5 hours walking and 1.5 hours stopped. This one was done quite slowly, so it could easily be done in 2.5 / 3 hours with short stops. However, doing this on the official "hottest day of the year" meant that whenever the wind dropped it didn't take long for thousands of blood crazed midges to find us. I think this may have been the first time I've been sitting on a summit just praying for wind so that I could eat in peace. It's a good thing I had my head net! This was possibly my first experience of a wind free summit in the 12-bens region. Views when you come to the saddle are fantastic, and for most of the walk to your east you'll enjoy the 12-bens, and to your west you'll have views out to Inisboffin, Clare island and Achill island.
