This is one of a number of Donegal hill names in which the element cró (which normally means 'a hollow' or 'a sheep-pen') has apparently become confused with cruach ('stack').   Cronamuck is the 755th highest place in Ireland.

Picture: Cronamuck, showing its steep west flank.
 
Granite knob at the end of a ridge.
Short Summary created by simon3  20 May 2013
This summit can be reached using the ridge extending NE from Croaghbarnes and there are suggestions it could be reached from Commeen to the north on the R253.
Cronamuck has views over towards Gaugin Mountain, Croaghbane and the magnificent but unfrequented Owendoo River valley.
Underfoot Cronamuck and nearby is made of often bare worn granite. The summit appears to be an unattached boulder of perhaps a metre in height.
A potential hazard is that on its west, north and east there are small rivers that could become impassable at short notice in wet weather. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/638/comment/5397/
