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/
