Six Derryveagh peaks (clarification)
CaptainVertigo, I was not of course suggesting my gully C as the way up an Cnoc Fada!

Gully A would likely be a quicker, easier access route. However if the G word isn't for you, an alternative would be as follows (of course you've probably already figured this out after a quick look at the map) :

Follow the Cronaniv Burn into the Poisoned Glen to B943 169 where it comes in sharply from the left. Head left here, ENE, following the river for about 500 metres. Then head SE into the hanging valley, exiting it's easternmost corner (between points 471 and 454). Then it's an easy clockwise loop up to an Cnoc Fada.

This route up is I think described by GerryM ( the same GerryM whose Muckish video started this conversation) in his 27/03/2010 comment for an Cnoc Fada and possibly also by Pazapas in his 19/10/2006 comment for Slieve Snaght.
