A peak-bagger's route over Mangerton and its satellites. Horrendous terrain on the way down Shaking Rock to the Kerry Way, so don't follow that part of the route. I reckon best would be to retrace one's steps to the col with Knockrower and stay above the 300m contour along the ridge NE of my route as to avoid dropping down into the valley.
