The third and final leg of my attempt to bag the Innishowen 500’s (See Slieve Main & Slieve Snaght for earlier legs). This part of the walk began at the Urrismenagh Viewpoint carpark (C317443 A). A track (meeting up with that described by Eoin below) runs from the edge of the carpark. I followed it up to below Crockmain. The track itself is much more convoluted than the map suggests. From the end of the track a bearing of 52 degrees NW takes you up a short ascent over a heather clad hill to a cairn. From here Crockmain can be reached maintaining the same bearing. Raghtin More peeps out above and behind. Rather than continuing straight, though, veer left to an obvious ridge/saddle. I turned right here and made for Crockmain summit. You could carry on towards Raghtin More if you didn't wish to climb Crockmain. The ascent to this minor top, sometimes rocky, is relatively easy. From Crockmain summit (C335449 D) there is a short drop of some 40 metres before an ascent of about 82m to the rocky summit of Raghtin More. With light beginning to fail and my camera on the blink, thus having to forego the wonderful views described by Eoin & Gerrym, I thought it best to beat a fairly hasty retreat, on a direct bearing of 224 degrees SW, across the western slope of Crockmain, rejoining the track described earlier. An enjoyable walk in the cool of the late afternoon which made the morning’s purgatorial trek seem almost worthwhile and all topped off with a beautiful sunset witnessed as I approached the Viewpoint carpark.
