eflanaga on Crockfadda North-East Top, 2006
by eflanaga  20 Apr 2006
(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/
