Short Summary created by jackill  21 May 2011
Approach from Glenveagh along the R254. Park in the small slipway carpark at B92918 12363 A room for 5-6 cars.
Walk northeast along the road for 1km, cross the fence to your left and follow the Sruhancrolee stream northwest over marshy ground before ascending steeply next to a small waterfall.
The slope is less steep as you cross a boggy kilometre west the small summit cairn of Crockfadda. Move on to Crockfadda NE then look for a steep gully rising the side of Slieve Snaght to the east.Climb the gully to the more gently sloping summit
If you climb here during warmer months bring midge repellant. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/142/comment/4902/
