Useful though not gracious spur of Crohane.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, simon3  17 Feb 2014
Crohane SW, the SW spur of Crohane, can be reached from the informal but traditional parking at W03678454 starA which is at the end of an extremely potholed road reached from the N22. Go south along the pilgrims path into the extremely scenic vee between Bennaunmore and Crohane SW to the south end of L. Nabroda. Start up the hill from around W0391 8151 starB. It should take about 1h30 to reach the top using this route provided you don't spend too long gaping at the unusual scenery.

An alternative route is to go via Crohane. There is a farmhouse at the southern end of the road, (Point W042 851 starC) where the hillwalking-friendly farmer will allow you to park. Take the track behind the outbuilding for about 100m and then cross a gate to take you directly up the spur to the NW of Crohane. The ascent takes 1.5 hours. From the summit head directly south for 500m down a steep but firm grassy slope then turn SW and ascent a fairly gentle rise for 750m to take you to the SW top’s highest point, which is marked only by a handful of white rocks. There are great views over Lough Guitane to the NW and Crohane Lake to the south. From Crohane to the SW top takes under thirty minutes. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/525/comment/5284/

Climbed in combination with Beenaunmore from Rosacroo forest on the R569 Kilgarvan road. Initially on good forest track past old farmhouse and then onto some very rough wet ground towards Beenaunmore, then down to Crohane Lough and steeply up to Crohane SW top, decided to head down towards forest track seen from above, had to negotiate some very rough ground to reach the track, would have been better to stay to the west of Crohane Lough for descent, weather was pretty awful on the day, very wet ground to contend with. Again some of these Carns proving to be very challenging Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/525/comment/23723/

As well as its useful intermediate location, Crohane SW affords a great view towards Bennaunmore and beyond to Stoompa and the east end of the Mangertons.
The smaller summit in the midground of this picture is Bennaunmore with its north end to the right of the picture. The lake to the right is part of the Killarney lakes. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/525/comment/6749/
