Short Summary created by simon3,  20 May 2013
This summit can be reached using the ridge extending NE from Croaghbarnes and there are suggestions it could be reached from Commeen to the north on the R253.
Cronamuck has views over towards Gaugin Mountain, Croaghbane and the magnificent but unfrequented Owendoo River valley.
Underfoot Cronamuck and nearby is made of often bare worn granite. The summit appears to be an unattached boulder of perhaps a metre in height.
A potential hazard is that on its west, north and east there are small rivers that could become impassable at short notice in wet weather. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/638/comment/5397/

Walked from Barnesmore Gap to Commeen and Cronamuck. The views from the summit are superb and climbing the mountain from the Commeen side would be straightforward. As a child I used to think Cronamuck looked an Irish Ayers Rock! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/638/comment/3176/

Exhausting, But Worth It
by Aidy  13 Apr 2015
Cronamuck was my third peak of this walk, having started north of Lough Eske, and already taken in Croaghbarnes and Meenanea. I am constantly amazed at the length of some of the walks undertaken by members here, but I can only judge my efforts by my own standards, and I found this walk very tiring over difficult ground. But, the stage from Meenanea to Cronamuck was probably the easiest part of the walk, and the extra distance was so short, it would have been inconceivable not to do it. Especially since I'd failed to reach Cronamuck on a previous attempt from the north. As Simon had predicted in his Short Summary, the rivers on that approach had proved impassable after a period of heavy rains. Those same rivers now viewed from the summit, provided some of the best views, along with the many other surrounding peaks. It had been a thoroughly enjoyable walk, but it was hard going on the way back. I avoided the ascent and descent of Croaghbarnes on the return leg, staying on low ground on its southern side, but this was probably equally hard - boggy, with tussocky grass. As usual, when I got back to the car, I was exhausted but very happy. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/638/comment/17929/
