[RWD version 1 ] Starting out at JB Malone's car park with stunning clear views of Luggala's cliff face down to Lough Tay. Easy going to the summit of Djouce following the Wicklow Way boardwalk over White Hill and deviating north to Djouce. Clear views, snow visible on Lug & Mullaghcleevaun. Descend to the coffin tombs on Djouce's north western face, before making up War Hill in the clouds. Small pile of rocks marks the summit cairn here and can be tricky to find in poor visibility. From here, took another bearing for Tonduff accross the valley - a natural path descends but you really have to find your own line to cross the the river Dargle. No particular flow to be seen as the river tributaries are obscured by grasses and reeds, but took the time to find a safe crossing. My route took me across the river after it forks (2 crossings) and there was no need to trek further upstream to avoid the Dargle entirely. From here, pick a spot on Tonduff and aim for it crossing the heather - not particularly boggy here. From Tonduff it was a lovely tip down to Maulin and further to Crone Wood. Had some time adn daylight on my side so added another 12km-ish along the Wicklow way as far as Glencullen. Lovely clear day out
