Worth the climb.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  15 Aug 2012
Park off road at B9331412721 A just S of a bridge over the Sruhancrolee stream. With the stream on the right follow it up NW over rough and marshy ground and after 1.5k go up steeply beside a small waterfall. as the ground becomes less steep continue to follow the line of the stream NW and then N to a boggy saddle between Slieve Snaght and Crockfadda NE Top B918145 B. Go SW (left) up the slope to gain the broad flat top with the high point marked by a substantial cairn. Return by way of ascent. This route can also be used as access to the first top in a looped walk that would also include Crockfadda and Crocknasharragh. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/449/comment/5208/
