Climbed June 8th - From my camp site just short of top of Croaghbarnes (See Croaghaniwore for previous stage of walk) I popped up onto the summit IG IG99061 90362 H before making my way towards Croaghbane. From the top of Croaghbarnes the summits of many of the peaks around and about were visible while beneath them the countryside was enveloped in an early morning (07.00hrs) mist. From the top I took a bearing of 274 degrees W for about 700m so as to drop onto col/saddle IG 98346 90297 I in an area apparently named Loughinisland (my map is damaged on the seam at this point). This was in order to avoid the almost sheer drop into the Owendoo River valley running NE. From the saddle I took a bearing of 334 degrees NW climbing steeply up through boulder field (keeping to left for easier going) and up onto broad top with a number of heights vying for summit honours. I walked betwixt and between two in particular about 100m apart before finally plumping for the one to the NW with GPS reading of - IG97850 91070 J. Views of neighbouring peaks hampered only by the inversion phenomena, which in itself was something to behold!. From Croaghbane Ardnageer beckoned a relatively short distance to the SW.
