Platform to a simply magnificent panorama.
by Harry Goodman  11 Aug 2012
On previous climbs of Slieve Snaght I had always approached from Dunlewy or from along the Dooish to Slieve Snaght ridge. I therefore took the opportunity on 26 July 2012 to climb it from the S, up from the R254, in order to access four tops not previously climbed, Bingorms on it's E side and Crockfadda NE Top, Crockfadda and Crocknasharragh to the W with Drumnalifferny Mt thrown in for good measure. ( For earlier parts of route see my comments on Bingorms and Drumnalifferny Mt.) From the rocky ground just N of L Slievesnaght I climbed up the ridge which runs down the NE side of the mountain. The bonus for including Slieve Snaght in my round was a simply magnificent 360 degree panorama of the hills and mountains of NW Donegal and those further afield Slievetooey, Slieve League and even the distant prow of Ben Bulbin. From the summit cairn I dropped down SW over a steep, rocky and heather/grass covered slope where care was needed to avoid hidden holes, to arrive at a boggy saddle B918145 A below my next objective Crockfadda NE Top.
