Just another top.
by Harry Goodman  11 Aug 2012
I came to Crockfadda on 26 July 2012 as the fifth in a round of six tops in the Derryveagh Mts. (For previous part of the route see my comments on Crockfadda NE Top.) From the saddle below Crockfadda NE Top B913140 C I continued up and along SW for some 500m to the top, marked by a small pile of stones, on yet another flat topped featureless grass covered plateau not uncommon in these hills. The views were similar to those I had seen from Crockfadda NE Top except that Crocknasharragh the final hill in my round was now in view some 1.6k further SW. I therefore pressed on by continuing down to the saddle with Crocknasharragh B906133 D. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/396/comment/14746/
