This diagram shows the walk in profile. It is not a crossection of the landscape, rather it is a graph of the height you would find yourself at as you walk. The walk usually starts on Muckish and proceeds left to right on the diagram.
As you can see very little of the walk is at a low gradient: you are constantly changing height.
One very distinctive feature of the walk is its end where you ascend in turn Beaghy, Mackoght before reaching Errigal.
Another well known feature illustrated well here is the steepness of the descents.
