Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  17 Nov 2011
The main disadvantage in climbing this hill is it's relative isolation, making it a top best climbed as part of a greater circuit involving other hills ( Grogan More, Crocknafarragh SE Top, Crockglass). For a direct ascent park off road at B846 167 A and walk SE around the N side of L. Caol to it's end at B850 163 B. Go initially NE up the line of a stream and then up the open hillside to Pt. 409 at B861166 C and then continue up ENE to Pt. 503 at B874 168 D. It is then a short drop down SE past tiny Mullincrick Lough (on right) and then an equally short walk up to the summit cairn. (While there, it is an easy walk of less than 30 mins out and back to bag the SE Top. Walk down SE to a col and then up over Pt. 463 to a small ring contour (470m) where a small cairn marks the top of Crocknafarragh SE Top on a surface so flat that a number of rocks could vie for such a distinction! In all a distance of about 700m with minimal assent.) Crocknafarragh is an excellent spot just to sit and take in the beautiful scenry of much of NW Donegal.
