Reached from Croaghbane (see for first part of circuit) as the second summit in the Bluestack 5 circuit. From the summit of Croaghbane walk down westwards over exposed slabs and isolated boulders, dropping down steeply into a gulley running north south. Cross this entering a spectacular little valley with a lough, large glacially deposited boulders and rock slabs. This was even more interesting in the mist as i had no idea what was coming up next - very varied scenery. Climb steeply beyond this to reach the large summit plateau. It is quite a tramp over this ,crossing numerous gullies and passing a very visible outcrop of white quartzite before dropping down into the col before the main summit of the range. Ardnageer is a massive lump of rugged rock with imposing buttresses on its northern flank. The southern side is perhaps even more impressive looking down over impossibly wild and rugged scenery to Lough Belshade and Lough Eske in the distance. A map and compass are a must in the mist.
