Crohan West (Cruachán in Irish) can be a convenient start to a circuit of the main mountains of the Knockmealdowns. It can be reached by ascending up a forest ride (narrow unplanted strip) just west of the Liam Lynch memorial.
Looked at from the summit, the two walls in the picture are like arms pointing towards two of the principal mountains. Knockmeal is to the left of the picture, Knocknafallia to the right. Knockmeal, to the south of Crohan, which would often be the next summit to visit in a circuit, can be reached along a heathery ridge nearly 2km long.
