Magnificent Viewpoint In Dramatic Weather
by Aidy  9 Apr 2016
I approached Slieve Snaght from Drumnalifferny Mountain, skirting the northern side of the lough. The eastern slope had looked extremely steep on the way over, but wasn't bad at all in reality. The views from the top are magnificent, and I had dramatic weather too, to add to the spectacle. Afterwards, I continued west to Crockfadda NE Top, and the descent down Slieve Snaght's west side was slow through a steep boulder field, but nothing seemed too bad after making it up the south side of Bingorms earlier!
