Picture: Summit area with Slieve Leage to north.
Usually done in conjunction with Slieve League, although it is a rewarding and spectacular ascent in itself. Park at the upper car park at A (G55834 75690) (space only for a few cars and often full in summer). Alternatively park at large lower car park at B (G57130 75560) and walk the 1.5km to upper car park. The route is simple although quite steep. Follow the steps/track in an easterly direction, which curves around to the north along the coastline., and then to the NW. It is mostly firm underfoot but in places there is a large amount of walker damage. You should reach the summit in under an hour. It is unmarked and identified only by a small grassy, heathery area with a single rock embedded in the earth. The views are tremendous.

Thanks for that Scapania, I hadn't come across it before though its a beauty. If it had berries on it I might still have mistaken it, though the fruits wouldn't be as closely attached to the stems as on Cotoneaster. If I'd found it in flower, being from family Ericaceae, I would hopefully have tracked it down by process of elimination! Attached is a distribution map for this species from 'The Wild Flowers of Britain & Northern Europe' by Gibbons and Brough. I've got another one for you which I'll post later, something Ranunculaceae I found in a gully in the South Prison of Lugnaquillia. Think I know what it is but its most untypical. I'm open to correction so have a look at it. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/673/comment/6664/

dino on Crockrawer
by dino 4 Dec 2007
I climbed this one yesterday (3rd December 2007) from the car park at Bunglas. At this time of the year and with the weather in a less than perfect state I had the hill pretty much to myself. It was a challenging walk with the conditions and I didn't make it as far as the trig on Slieve League but I still had a very enjoyable 4 hour walk to the plateau above Kerringear.

Due to the weather conditions I took the lower, less adventurous but not particularly easy path that branches off just past Cnoc Ramhar at C (G559 773) to meet up with The Pilgrim's Path from Teelin at D (G559 777). No photographs today despite sometimes pleasant views as I managed to lose my camera at some stage while wandering around the top and the ruined Church!

It looks like the path from Bunglas is to get some much needed help as the entire route is marked out with red marker posts and there is some work currently under way at the car park and a new viewing platform nearby. Hopefully the new path won't be as regimented as the steps up to Scregeighter (308m) which to me is the most difficult and tedious section of the entire walk.

Invasive Alien?
by fingalscave 25 Jan 2012
January 2012. Some 500m before Cnoc Ramhar at alt. 340m, I came upon a patch of what I believe to be Cotoneaster integrifolius. This shrubby non-native plant is apparantly spread by birds eating the red fruits in Autumn and passing the seed through their guts to carry on the life cycle. In this exposed cliff top position, the stems of this himalayan plant remain entirely ground hugging, not rising above the surrounding heathery vegetation. According to some authorities, C. integrifolius can become a pest species in some delicate habitats. Not being sure of identification, I just admired it's particular dense, dark green beauty and moved on. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/673/comment/6662/

The road up to the car park at Bunglas has been widened in the past year or two, and it's now possible for two cars to pass without the fear that one of them might plunge to the rocky shores below. The photo shows Cnoc Ramhar and Slieve League itself, taken from the well-trodden path that leads up from the car park. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/673/comment/4535/

tplague on Crockrawer
by tplague 4 Jan 2008
Hi Dino. Is this your first/only slog up Slieve League? If so, I hope you'll try it again in better weather. I've done it maybe 4 times, from Bunglas and from Malinbeg. Despite the overused path between Bunglas and Cnoc Ramhar, on a clear day the views (360 degrees) are otherworldly. And BTW, no one should ever allow themselves to be "psyched out" by the legendary "One Man's Pass", which from my point of view is no more thrilling on any but the windiest of days than strolling over a narrow drumlin ridge.... One could roll across it, dance across it, traipse.... sashay... Good news (I hope) about the repairs. That section is badly eroded and people's feet have cut multiple tracks through it.
