This is a peak I'd been planning to tackle for some time, as it's featured in a nice set of walking cards I have called Landscapes from Stone: Walk the Sperrins. I started in Moneyneany village, outside Draperstown. I parked in the large chapel car park at the top of the village (as the card recommends) and headed south, over the Douglas River and turned right up the Drumderg Road. The first part of the route is signed as part of Hudy's Way, a 10km walk developed in memory of a local man who once attempted flight using home-made wings, unsuccessfully leaping off the nearby Craignashoke cliffs! Follow the minor country road to Crockataggart townland (H 741 969 I), where the Ulster Way is currently signed left and Hudy's Way right. The UW signage is in fact obsolete as this route was recently redeveloped and diverted south here via lower lying country roads. Regardless, diverge from Hudy's Way and head left as the trail begins to climb more steeply uphill. This is a long and winding but very pleasant walk, with ever widening views: to the north was Mullaghmore/Moydamlaght Forest, then to the left the distinctive profiles of Benbradagh then Binevenagh appeared, and finally Inishowen. To the east/south east the view was quite hazy but Slieve Gallion dominated and I could just about make out Lough Neagh beyond (and the Antrim/Belfast hills beyond it). To the west the long ridge of Craigagh Hill, Spelhoagh and Oughtmore were clearly visible and took on a different appearance in the winter sun. You cross three cattlegrids in total, the last just west of the lower peak of Crockmore (478m, H 727 955 J). I detoured quickly to check out this featureless summit, thinking it may one day appear on MV and I'd be kicking myself I didn't bag it when I had the chance! Returning to the path, after a short distance it forks again. Follow the right fork which makes its way towards the higher summit; or rather it runs parallel to a fence which reaches the summit. After a time, the path levels out and you see an old rusty gate ahead. Look to your right and a path continues the short distance to the summit. When you reach the fence straight ahead, turn left and the summit is marked by a meeting of fences in typical Sperrins fashion. By now the views had opened out to include the higher peaks of Sawel, Dart etc., Carnanelly & Goles Forest across the Glenelly Valley, and the region's various loughs, namely Loughs Fea and Ouske. There is a stile here where you can cross and begin the long descent north then east back to Moneyneany via Craigbane. After some deliberation I opted not to follow the suggested route, but rather to tackle the neighbouring summit of Mullaghsallagh (485m), to the west, for which I'll do a separate account. The suggested descent however would have been much simpler and shorter, and is quite easily discernible from OSNI map 13. If anyone would like to see the route card I would be happy to scan and email. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/403/comment/4290/
