Climbed 7th June – This was the firs of nine peaks in the Croaghgorm (Bluestack) range climbed over two days. Having climbed Croaghconnellagh last year I decided to start with Croaghnageer and work my way around counter clockwise i.e. east to west. Parked car to side of Edergole Lane and took route as described by gerrym in his comments on Ardnageer up and around to where the track ends at sluice gate on River Corabber IG 97782 87952 A. From here I took a bearing of 85 degrees ENE & crossed the river (at shallow point) and made my way, passing various lochs & locheens including L. Nacroaghy IG 99336 88351 B & Illanmore. Terrain was difficult enough through the usual tussock grass and the odd marshy piece of ground, particularly, as I was carrying a heavily laden pack. Eventually reached foot of Croaghnageer and climbed fairly steeply up its western side. Summit has a fairly rocky top interspersed with wet patches of ground to catch the unwary. Great views (again as concisely described by gerrym below), particularly across to the major Bluestack peaks in the early evening sunshine. I turned my attention to the short distance NW and my next target Croaghaniwore. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/325/comment/2383/
