An uninspiring summit with great views
Short Summary created by liz50  21 Mar 2017
The easiest approach is to park at Urrismenagh viewpoint carpark C317 443 A and follow the track to its highest point before heading north over heather to the summit.
Alternatively from Mamore Gap car park C323 423 B walk downhill in a SE direction to a gravel track and follow it to the head of the valley before veering off to the NW to reach the summit.
From the North East park at Butlers Glen C358 468 C with off road parking and walk up through the Glen to the end of the track before ascending in a westerly direction.
From the summit of Crockmain it is approx 750m to the NE to the arderin Raghtin More Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/581/comment/5340/
