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 198th highest place in Ireland. Crohane is the second most easterly summit in the Mangerton area.

Crohane seen from Bennaunmore. The simplest approaches to Crohane are from the north. The glen between Crohane and Bennaunmore is beautiful and there are some columnar rock formations to be seen on the cliffs. However, it needs caution as the same sharp-edged rock makes for slow and awkward going underfoot. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/195/comment/771/
