Worth the climb.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  15 Aug 2012
Park off road at B9331412721 A just S of a bridge over the Sruhancrolee stream. With the stream on the right follow it up NW over rough and marshy ground and after 1.5k go up steeply beside a small waterfall. as the ground becomes less steep continue to follow the line of the stream NW and then N to a boggy saddle between Slieve Snaght and Crockfadda NE Top B918145 B. Go SW (left) up the slope to gain the broad flat top with the high point marked by a substantial cairn. Return by way of ascent. This route can also be used as access to the first top in a looped walk that would also include Crockfadda and Crocknasharragh. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/449/comment/5208/

Crockfadda North-East Top in the foreground with Crockfadda behind on the left. On the right is the isolated Lough Agannive and on the extreme right is the corner of Lough Atirrive.In the distance behind Crockfadda is Crocknasharragh at 495 mtrs just missing the 500 mtr list. The vantage point for the photo is on the side of Slieve Snaght. After descending from Crockfadda North-East Top we paused for a while wondering what was the best way to climb Slieve Snaght fromm this side as at first glance it seemed quite steep. Spurred on by the gung-ho approach of one of the party we went straight up a grassy, midge-infested gully at approx. B921 143 C. This turned out to be easier going than expected although we exited the gully before the top as it was becoming quite steep.Once out of the gully the slope began to level off as we neared the summit cairn. We descended the steep boggy slope to Loch Sliabh Sneachta , a scenic little lake with much evidance of glacial erosion before striking out for Drumnaliffern and Bingorms.

Easy Bag
by Aidy  9 Apr 2016
After making it down through the boulders on Slieve Snaght's western side, it was a short easy walk up to the cairn marking the top of this summit. An easy bag on the way to Crockfadda itself, and good views back to Slieve Snaght and beyond to Errigal. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/449/comment/18487/

This is a low ridge of a summit, just reaching the 500m mark. It is very much overshadowed by its eastern neighbour Sleve Snaght (right of picture) and even by Crockfadda to its west.

The murky view to the north includes the extensive beach north of Falcarragh 20k away and the scree slopes on the side of Slieve Snaght.

A lonely spot, though the summit has a cairn. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/449/comment/1948/

Unimpressive it may seem but views make it worthwhile.
by Harry Goodman  11 Aug 2012
My approach to this top on 26 July 2012 was up from the boggy saddle to the W of Slieve Snaght B918145. This was the fourth hill in a round which had started from the R254 and up over Bingorms. (For the previous part of my route see my comments on Slieve Snaght.) Viewed from the heights of Slieve Snaght this is an unimpressive top appearing, as it does, as a ridge to be crossed on the way to Crockfadda. The ground up was in the main trackless but soon led to a broad flat top with the high point marked by a substantial cairn. While views E were completely blocked by the bulk of Slieve Snaght those to the N from Errigal along to Muckish were impressive and to the S was the long line of the Bluestacks. Although this is a mountain that is unlikely to be sought out and climbed in it's own right it is certainly worth including in a round with other tops. From the high point I continued down SW to yet another saddle B913140 D on the way to my next summit, Crockfadda. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/449/comment/14745/

(Climbed April 17th – see Slieve Snaght for previous stage in walk). The descent from Slieve Snaght via its boulder-strewn western slope to the narrow col between it and Crockfadda N-E Top is an extremely steep 220m and is not for the faint-hearted. Wiser people might decide to endure some extra walking by descending Snaght’s southern slope with its steady gradient before turning north and climbing back up to the col. Since the weather was threatening to deteriorate, I decided to take the steeper option. With due care the descent proved quite manageable but I was glad to reach the relative flatness of the col just south of a small locheen (91827 14632 E). From here it is a short and easy climb up onto the summit. The top has nothing particularly noteworthy to offer, cowering as it does beneath Slieve Snaght’s brooding presence. Therefore, I did not delay making straight for Crockfadda (the final target in this five summit horseshoe walk). (Picture is taken on way to Crockfadda looking back over the N-E Top towards Errigal in the distant gloom). Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/449/comment/2287/
