A fabulously intricate climb with huge diversity of scenery and terrain over the 540m approx ascent to the summit. Parked on a cul de sac road in Edergole townland, at the northern end of Lough Eske (G972871 F). At the end of the road there are some old farm buildings; you'll see a walker post signifying part of the old Ulster Way, turned offroad there and followed a zig zag path upwards to the Corabber River. The mist level was low (around 200m) and we either missed Eas Doonan waterfall or were very underwhelmed by it. Followed the river upstream for about 1km, before taking a right angle left turn to follow the same river up to Lough Belshade (312m). Only managed very brief glimpses of the steep walls surrounding the lake, mist was generally very heavy. Noticed what looked like a TV aeriel near the dam where the river flows from the lake (can anyone comment?). The silence was deafening, shattered only briefly by a text message from my mobile company advising me of charges now that I was roaming in the UK!! (The border with Co. Tyrone is not far away). Walked around the lake shore anticlockwise to the point (G978897 G) where a small stream flows down into the lake, and followed the stream upwards to the col marked 'Loughinisland' on OS Discovery Map. The path of this stream is actually the "oblique green line" identified in the picture posted by member "padodes" (see Ardnageer SW top). After a brief diversion to Croaghbarnes, returned to Loughinisland, followed a short ramp (WSW) and then an intricate sometimes rocky sometimes boggy route to the snow-clad summit of Croaghbane. It was difficult to identify the summit, but assumed it to be a small pile of stones marked by a small blue stick (like one you might buy in a garden centre to prop a shrub) presumably planted there by the local walking club (Ardnageer and Ardnageer South West top have these as well, Bluestack may have one also but couldn't find its summit with 20-30m visibility). Croaghbane is a hard earned 641m, would love to retrace the route on a clear day as the variety of the route is as impressive as any mountain I climbed to date.
