Trying to make Cruiscin look impressive...

Here is Cruiscin from a different angle, which clearly shows the two different sides. The W slopes are steep and rocky and can offer a minute or two of light scrambling, while the E slopes are much more gentle. A tiny hump between two giants, but a nice spot to sit on and enjoy the views, and only a few minutes' diversion from the "main route". Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/681/comment/18563/
