Crockfadda North-East Top in the foreground with Crockfadda behind on the left. On the right is the isolated Lough Agannive and on the extreme right is the corner of Lough Atirrive.In the distance behind Crockfadda is Crocknasharragh at 495 mtrs just missing the 500 mtr list. The vantage point for the photo is on the side of Slieve Snaght. After descending from Crockfadda North-East Top we paused for a while wondering what was the best way to climb Slieve Snaght fromm this side as at first glance it seemed quite steep. Spurred on by the gung-ho approach of one of the party we went straight up a grassy, midge-infested gully at approx. B921 143 C. This turned out to be easier going than expected although we exited the gully before the top as it was becoming quite steep.Once out of the gully the slope began to level off as we neared the summit cairn. We descended the steep boggy slope to Loch Sliabh Sneachta , a scenic little lake with much evidance of glacial erosion before striking out for Drumnaliffern and Bingorms.
