Up the Poisoned Glen...
by Peter Walker  20 Jun 2011
Crockballaghgeeha represents a sensible opening gambit for an 'extended' Slieve Snaght circuit from the north. Unsurprisingly it's best to start with the classic womble up the impressively primeval Poisoned Glen (a walk that this MViewer found to be less annoyingly tough and boggy the closer he kept to the stream), following its left hand turn at its head. Keep climbing alongside the stream (vague, indeed possibly imagined hints of path) and the spur of Crockballaghgeeha comes increasingly into view. I left the stream at around (948 172) and headed basically due E; it's very straightforward to pick out a route up the steep hillside if visibility is clear, the summit following soon after reaching the crest of the ridge. From hereon in the route to and over Slieve Snaght is enormous fun (lots of ins and outs and Celtic badlands) but I'd imagine it to be a right barrel of laughs if the cloud is down. 'You see that heading you've just set? I'm very much looking forward to watching you try to walk along it...'

The photo is a view from the summit, looking over Dunlewy Lough to Lough Nacung and with Errigal being as promiscuous as it usually is. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/509/comment/6380/
