Simple hop over from its big brother
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  15 Apr 2016
This summit is usually done in conjunction with Slievetooey - see that summit for parking and initial ascent.
From Slievetooey summit head west for 1km, descending to 350m at G619 900 A. Turn north up the slope, which is initially steep but soon eases. There are some peat hags at the col and it is quite boggy, but not too bad. Heather as you ascend, quickly changes to rocks and short grass. Time between summits, 40 minutes. Top marked by a cairn.

Slievetooey? There's three of them!
by millsd1  18 Jun 2012
Climbed Slievetooey W Top on Sunday 17/6/2012 as part of a loop walk incorporating all three of Slievetooey's tops, part of the Colmcille Way and Crockuna. Car parked at lay-by at approx G642890 B.
Great views all-round including Errigal, Benbulbin and Croaghpatrick.

From Slievetooey Main Top, 511m, G628899 C, access to W Top, 472m, G617906 D, involves a 160m descent following a very faint grass track down the ridge in a westerly direction to a wet boggy col sprinkled with a few peat hags.
From there a 120m ascent in a northerly direction over rock and very short heather will take you to the summit.
In conditions of poor visibility, bear in mind there is a fairly steep drop to your right at all times on this approach.

Slievetooey Far W Top, 450m, lies about 2.5km further west at G593904 E. Initially follow a magnetic bearing of 269 degrees aiming for the southern edge of Lough Awoty (skirting the northern edge of the un-named lough to the east), and this will keep you largely clear of peat hags on easy ground, largely rock and low heather.
