Climbed on a bright November afternoon, having already bagged Sliabh Main & Sliabh Snaght in the morning, there were only a few hours of daylight left by the time I reached the car park at Mamore Viewpoint IC317 443 A, in order to try to bag Crockmain and the two Raghtins. Turned out I didn't have enough time to take in the smaller of the Raghtin tops. Leaving the car park I followed the rough track running east up and over Spot Ht 206 IC324 442 D eventually taking northern turn and ascending onto western flank of Crockmain. Made my way across the flank at a height of approximately 360m until roughly level with summit area before ascending sharply to the top. Raghtin Mor beckoned a short distance NNW.
