Bump on ridge with good views.
Short Summary created by simon3,  20 May 2013
Meenanea is a summit of low prominence on the ridge from Cronamuck to Croaghbarnes.
It is most likely that it will be reached as part of a traverse along this ridge.
It has excellent views towards Croaghnageer and other hills to the SE as well as Gaugin Mountain and Croaghbane.
Like most of the ridge the granite rock underneath is near or on the surface. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/670/comment/5429/

The Energising Effect Of Great Views
by Aidy  13 Apr 2015
I visited Meenanea as the middle peak in, what was by my standards, a long, difficult walk from an unnamed road north of Lough Eske, over Croaghbarnes, and after Meenanea, to Cronamuck. By the time I got to the summit of Croaghbarnes, I already felt like I'd had a long walk over difficult terrain, but the views were amazing in this wild area right in the centre of the Bluestacks, and there wasn't too much descent and ascent to reach Meenanea to the northeast. I had been having great weather, but as I walked along the ridge between Croaghbarnes and Meenanea, admiring the beautifully bleak Owendoo Valley, a hail storm passed over, creating a rainbow and adding to an already ridiculously good view. I tried to capture it between the downpours, but a photo could never convey how elating it was to gaze on. It gave me renewed energy to make the short climb to the summit, marked by possibly the smallest cairn I've ever seen. The next stage, to Cronamuck would be a short jump.
