Unimpressive it may seem but views make it worthwhile.
by Harry Goodman  11 Aug 2012
My approach to this top on 26 July 2012 was up from the boggy saddle to the W of Slieve Snaght B918145 B. This was the fourth hill in a round which had started from the R254 and up over Bingorms. (For the previous part of my route see my comments on Slieve Snaght.) Viewed from the heights of Slieve Snaght this is an unimpressive top appearing, as it does, as a ridge to be crossed on the way to Crockfadda. The ground up was in the main trackless but soon led to a broad flat top with the high point marked by a substantial cairn. While views E were completely blocked by the bulk of Slieve Snaght those to the N from Errigal along to Muckish were impressive and to the S was the long line of the Bluestacks. Although this is a mountain that is unlikely to be sought out and climbed in it's own right it is certainly worth including in a round with other tops. From the high point I continued down SW to yet another saddle B913140 D on the way to my next summit, Crockfadda. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/449/comment/14745/
