Glacial erosion at its best
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman, jackill  11 Aug 2012
Park in the small slipway carpark B92918 12363 A off the R254 and walk NE along the road for 1k to cross a bridge over the Sruhancrolee stream. There is also room for a couple of cars to park off road on the left about 200m SW of the bridge thus avoiding the road walk. Follow the stream northwest up over marshy ground and then the Scardangal Burn, keeping it on the left as it turns N. Climb up steeply past some small waterfalls to B930140 B and then go NE up Bingorms rocky slope to the summit. Return by way of ascent or go N along the ridge and down to Lough Slieve Snaght. Follow the Burn down from the Lough's outflow. Alternatively for a more indirect approach, which includes other tops, follow the Sruhancrolee stream NW before ascending steeply next to a small waterfall and then a boggy kilometre W to gain the small summit cairn of Crockfadda and then NE to Crockfadda NE Top. Look for a steep green gully rising up the side of Slieve Snaght to the E and follow this up to the gently sloping summit plateau. Drop down E and skirt L Slieve Snaght's N shore before an easy climb SE up a rocky ridge and then S along a flat broad plateau to Bingorms. Descend SW to the Scardangal Burn and follow it down to the R254. If you climb here during warmer months bring midge repellant. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/314/comment/5074/
