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/
