Summary for Crockballaghgeeha (Cnoc Bhealach Gaoithe): A northern buttress of the Derryveagh Mountains
Summary created by Peter Walker 2012-06-20 22:33:52
Crockballaghgeeha is one of numerous tops acting as potential footnotes/aperatifs to walks around the Poisoned Glen in the Derryveagh mountains. Being both rugged and quite convenient, it's well worth including in such trips.

Start from the minor road just past the ruined Dunlewy Church A (B930 189), following the path leading up the true right bank of the Croananiv Burn. Maintain this course once the path peters out, turning left at the obvious bend in the glen at B (B942 170), keeping alongside the stream on vague hints of trod. Leave the stream at C (BC (B948 172)), making your own way through the outcrops studding the spur of Crockballaghgeeha to the east. The summit is pleasantly stubbled with rocks and has fine views of Errigal, Dunlewy Lough and the northern ramparts of Slieve Snaght: the walk from here to the latter is an excellent traverse of complex mountain terrain.

A PATRICK ZERKOWSKI FILM
by CaptainVertigo 12 Apr 2015
Hillwalkers planning to tackle the Poisoned Glen and Slieve Snaght have a feast of really good films to watch on YouTube. Critchley/Schwartz, McVeigh and Patrick Zerkowski have all produced really high quality material. The route planner will very much approve of the way that Patrick names his mountains as he proceeds along his route. You know exactly where he has been. Patrick brings some special shots to the table. I like the way we see him ascending through stone tunnels, and tackling various obstacles. It just deepens the viewers knowledge of the local landscape.
Music is very much a matter of personal taste. Patrick favours the dramatic, and his opening theme is very much a rehash of "The Omen 2" but the subsequent melodies are much more soothing. (I see from the Credits that all the music is all by Blankenburg so it is Blankenburg's changing moods that are at play here!)
Above all, praise is due to Patrick for the excellence of his film work. Crystal clear composition, beautifully assembled. Patrick was new to the scene a couple of years ago. Within that short time he has become one of the leading mountain film makers. A great credit to his hard work and talent

Up the Poisoned Glen...
by Peter Walker 20 Jun 2011
Crockballaghgeeha represents a sensible opening gambit for an 'extended' Slieve Snaght circuit from the north. Unsurprisingly it's best to start with the classic womble up the impressively primeval Poisoned Glen (a walk that this MViewer found to be less annoyingly tough and boggy the closer he kept to the stream), following its left hand turn at its head. Keep climbing alongside the stream (vague, indeed possibly imagined hints of path) and the spur of Crockballaghgeeha comes increasingly into view. I left the stream at around (C (B948 172)) and headed basically due E; it's very straightforward to pick out a route up the steep hillside if visibility is clear, the summit following soon after reaching the crest of the ridge. From hereon in the route to and over Slieve Snaght is enormous fun (lots of ins and outs and Celtic badlands) but I'd imagine it to be a right barrel of laughs if the cloud is down. 'You see that heading you've just set? I'm very much looking forward to watching you try to walk along it...'

The photo is a view from the summit, looking over Dunlewy Lough to Lough Nacung and with Errigal being as promiscuous as it usually is. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/509/comment/6380/
