Rugged highpoint on a gnarly, rocky SW-NE ridge
Short Summary created by markmjcampion, jackill  17 Jan 2021
Slieve Snaght, just S of Erigal, is a steep-sided sentinel mountain in an area of interesting but dangerous terrain. Much care is needed esp if parking to the S. Views are stunning including Erigal, the Aghlas and many of Glenveagh peaks as well as the N Bluestacks and out to some of the offshore islands.
S. Park at B92918 12363 A room for 5-6 cars. Walk NE along the road for 1km, cross the fence on left and follow the Sruhancrolee stream NW over marshy ground before ascending steeply next to a small waterfall. The slope is less steep as you cross a boggy km W to the small summit cairn of Crockfadda. Move on to Crockfadda NE then look for a steep gully rising up the side of Slieve Snaght to the E. Climb the gully to the more gently sloping summit. 2hrs+
You can also reach Crockfadda from the same starting point by going SW along the road until you reach less steep ground on your right [approx. B92287 11520 B]
SE. Start at approx. B95073 14111 C, first climbing Drumnalifferny and descending to B93327 15246 D before dropping carefully down to the N shores of Lough Slievesnaght and ascending steeply but without danger to SS. 2.5hrs+
N. Park in Dunlewy near B92955 19107 E and aim for B93246 18060 F on the NNW spur of Drumnatifferny. Continue along the spur to approx. B93513 16909 G and then contour oround until you are above Loiugh Maam. From here aim for the obvious col at B93088 15254 H. From here ascend steeply to SS. Allow 2hrs+
