We set off for Crohane as spring seemed to have finally arrived after a long and deep winter. We parked at W043 852 A, where there is space for a few cars (note you do not have to park in the private farmyard beyond). We headed SE, dodging mountain bikes on the way, as they partook in a local race, then for the intermediate summits, 348, 458 and 494, aided by sheep tracks and a tractor path. The views, as described elsewhere, are very fine indeed, the Paps being particularly prominent (I hadn't previously realised the meaning of 'Paps', but fully appreciated this most appropriate designation from our vantage point!). The summit was just under 4k from our starting point, a ledge behind the summit cairn offering excellent respite from the wind and a nice spot for a deserved refreshment! Our descent was ill-conceived, involving an arduous and irritating descent to the SW, with little reward in additional views (seemingly, you would need to head to the Cappagh Valley, beyond Bennaunmore for those). Crohane strikes me as a largely unheralded mountain, but absolutely worth a visit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/195/comment/4488/
