Climb it, but include one or more "cousins"
Short Summary created by simon3, Harry Goodman  20 Jun 2018
The way to Crocknafarragh SE Top can follow the full route up to Crocknafarragh with an additional 700m walk out to the lesser top or, part of the way up, by contouring up and around the S flanks of Crocknafarragh and then making directly for the SE Top. Both options are given in the following route descriptions . Park off road at B846 167 A and walk SE on a track, around the N side of Lough Caol, to its end B850 163 B. Go NE (left) up hill along the line of a stream for about 200m and then up the open hillside to B861 166 C .
Route 1: Continue up ENE to Pt. 503 B874 168 D. It is then a short drop down SE past tiny Mullincrick Lough (on right) and an equally short walk up to Crocknafarragh summit cairn at B878 168 E. Continue down SE to a col and then up over Pt 463 B883165 F to a small ring contour (470m) where a small cairn marks the high point of Crocknafarragh SE Top.
Route 2: From Pt 409 B861 166 C contour E up and around the flanks of Crocknafarragh past the S tip of Mullincrick Lough B876 166 G. From here continue on to Crocknafarragh SE Top. This more direct approach has the disadvantage that it excludes the fine views to be seen from Crocknafarragh and saves little in terms of effort. This is a hill that will rarely,if ever, be visited in it's own right and suffers somewhat by being overshadowed by it's higher "cousins". Any views that it enjoys are even better and more expansive from either Crocknafarragh or Crockglass to the east and west respectively. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/549/comment/5308/

Worth seeing but not worth going to see (in its own right)
by Harry Goodman  7 Nov 2011
I crossed Crocknafarragh SE Top on 10 Aug 2010 as part of a round of five hills not previously visited . ( See my comments on Crocknafarragh for earlier part of route.) The approach from Crocknafarragh B8781116752 H was an easy short walk down to the coll and then up over Pt 463 to a small ring contour (470m) about 200 metres further E across the flatish top. A small cairn marks the high point B8842316445 I and just a few metres away is an even smaller cairn that could also lay claim to this distinction. I leave it to those with high quality technology to decide on a precise location on some future visit! Both cairns are shown in the photo. This is a rather remote top and is not one that will be singled out for climbing in its own right. Rather I feel it will only be visited, as in my case, when climbing others in the area. It suffers somewhat by being overshadowed by its higher "cousins" and any panorama that it enjoys is even better and more widespread from either Crocknafarragh or Crockglass to its west and east respectively. From here my next objective was Crockglass some 800 metres to the NE. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/549/comment/6005/
