Starting out in the sun from the gap, following a nice line up over Carrigvore, Gravale & Duff Hill before hitting the shoulder of Mullaghcleevaun. Some patches of snow surviving the sunshine, clear skies. Took a nice line down off the summit here heading west, staying on a fine grassy patch and avoiding bog on a more northern route before crossing a small brook by Billy Byrne's gap. Then a makeshift strike out for the summit of Moanbane, very wet here given the recent rainfall. The summit is marked by a small stake in the bog, Finally down and up onto Silsean and the forest by Ballyknocken before dark.
