Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  29 Mar 2014
This route is via Croaghbane, Ardnageer & Ardnageer SW Top. Turn south off the R253 and enter the Reelan River Valley, where you will see a sign for Slí na Finne. Turn south here and follow the road for 200m, crossing a flat bridge. There is parking just across the bridge for a couple of cars at G963 937 A. Follow the Sli na Finne track east for 50m then turn south up Glascarns Hill and on to Croaghbane. Turn directly west across very rocky terrain which features numerous crevices and large outcrops. There is a steepish final climb to Ardnageer. From here proceed 700m south west to Ardnageer SW top. Croaghgorm lies a further 1.5 km to the south west, with a relative gentle ascent across a mixture of rock and grass. The summit features a circular wind-shelter type structure a couple of metres in diameter. There are beautiful views of the Croaghnard Lough valley to the north. Time from car to top: 3.25 hours.
