Approach from Butlers Glen and Raghtin More to the N. From the higher top of Raghtin More this hill does not look out of place amongst the rugged line of hills heading S to Lough Swilly. There is an easy drop down to a col with some pools of water and a short climb to the cairn at the top of Crockmain. There are fantastic views in all directions, except N which is blocked by Raghtin More. The view S is by far the most captivating over a number of sharp tops backed by the blue waters of Lough Swilly.
There is a long drop down continuing in a southerly direction on good ground, with the odd wild orchid adding colour. The view to Mamore Hill is very impressive and a daunting looking climb. The col brings a track which povides alternative and easier access from the carpark on the road to Mamore Gap. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/581/comment/3133/
