Tackled this as the last summit on an eastern attack on the Knockmealdown ridge. After making a left turn on the shoulder of Knockmeal following the earthern bank which conveniently helped us most of the day to find our way safely and easily in atrocious weather. Although the most modest of the summits achieved on our traverse, it wasn't easy, as for the most of the trek over from Knockmeal, there is little in the way of a path, and heather creates the need for high stepping and a career in the Folies Bergere would be the natural conclusion! At least though, by this time although the gale was still blowing and the rain was as heavy as ever, the wind was at our backs. To exit Crohan West, we followed the track made parallel to a row of decaying fenceposts which brought us to the woodland edge. From here we could discern the forest track ahead along which The E Munster Way travels. We crossed some young forestry down to it and turning left followed the Way back to The Vee.
