(Climbed April 17th – see Bingorms for previous stage in walk). From the summit of Bingorms there is a short albeit fairly steep drop over boulder-strewn slopes into Scardangal Burn (93017 14526 B). The descent is not so difficult so long as care is taken. This would be especially pertinent in wet conditions when the boulders may become treacherous for the unwary. I crossed a small stream and climbed for about thirty metres until I reached a large boulder. Here, I decided to stop for lunch. I re-commenced my climb up the boggy eastern slope of Slieve Snaght. Having rested I thought I was up to the steeper climb. My left knee thought better of it and was beginning to object strongly to the pressure it was being put under. In hindsight it might have been better to drop a little further south into the Burn from Bingorms so as to climb Snaght’s south-eastern slope - the gradient at this end appears less steep. However, I persevered until I topped Snaght arriving at its summit through a heavy veil of mist. I carried out some running repairs on the knee (bandage) sheltering behind the summit cairn. The mist cleared after a short time allowing me to see my final two targets; Crockfadda North-East Top & Crockfadda. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/142/comment/2286/
