Under the best weather/soil moisture conditions, an approach from the West is very feasible. Starting and finishing at the road head at Srahduggaun, F86585 07217 B, a long (5k or so) walk across spongy sphagnum and short grass and heather brings you to the ridge running North from the Corrannabinnia SW plateau. A fine high level walk following the ridge brings you to Glenamong and from there, pick your route back to the start - there's plenty of scope! One word of caution - be careful crossing the boggy areas with the really bright green grass on the return, they may be really deep! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/134/comment/19540/
