This peak has the classic hay-stack shape which is typical of mountains whose names in cruach/cruachán. Near Lough Nabroda are some crags with rhyolite formations which, though less spectacular, resemble the organ pipe formations at the Giant's Causeway.   Crohane is the 194th highest summit in Ireland. Crohane is the second most easterly summit in the Mangerton area.

Bennaunmore - neighbour
by skyehigh  30 Mar 2012 The neighbouring Bennaunmore doesn't qualify for inclusion in our list [ it does now ], but is a strikingly rugged peak. Worth including in a round with Crohane? The north, east and west flanks are all very steep.
