Summary Technical open mountain
Notes

Glendasan is the open area on the left before you reach Wicklow Gap when travelling from Laragh. The area is covered by rock and contour detail. A range of courses are offered to cater for all ages and abilities. Some course lengths may seem short, but this is a technical and in parts a physical area. Having said that, we have been restricted in the area available to use and this has shortened the Brown course. Underfoot conditions are currently better then ever experienced before and hence runnability is better then usual.
