Southeastern outlier of High Sperrins
Short Summary created by Onzy  4 Nov 2014
Crockbrack is situated in the southeast corner of the network of roads which cordon off the high Sperrins. As such, it is easily reached either from the B47 to the south or the B40 to the east. Given its position there are substantial views, particularly to the south and east.

From the south, one approach is from a gated track at H705 944 A. After 200m the track forks; the right track heading towards the hill until it peters out at around 370m. There is a fence on the left which leads all the way to the top.

From the B40 to the east, a number of starting points are possible including making use of tracks leaving the B40 at either H749 974 B or H754 967 C.

There is a substantial fence junction at H71714 95747 D. The actual summit is 100-150m along the fence heading west from this point. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/403/comment/5162/
