Short hop from East top.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  31 Aug 2015
See comment for Croaghnageer East top for initial ascent. From the East top turn NW for about 300m before heading SW up a gently rising slope for roughly 400m to reach the main top. Summit is a mixture of grass and rocks and is marked by a cairn. There is a small lough quite close to the summit. It takes just 20 minutes to reach the top from the East top.
