Short winter days, increasing distances from Dublin, and in increasingly geriatric Labrador (under vet's orders to "take it easy with the hiking") all conspire to put the days of six-hour bagging hikes behind me. That said, there are plenty of shorter walks where you can take in a new mountain and still have an enjoyable day. Crohan West from the east is one such walk. Parking to the east (see my comment for Knockmeal), you approach from the slopes of Knockmeal but before reaching the summit, cut to the right (north) and contour around the eastern slopes until you get to the first col between Knockmeal and Crohan West. From there, it's a simple matter of following the wall north to the summit.The peak is adorned with a cairn and offers great views: the Galty range to the west, Comeraghs to the east, and Slievenamon (see picture) to the NE.
