Short Summary created by simon3, wicklore  27 May 2022
Mullach Glas NE Top (Cruiscin) will probably never be climbed in its own right and will most likely always be a stop on the way to or from Corcogemore and Mullagh Glas. It is situated almost in the col between its two massive neighbours. One approach is from Corcogemore. As you descend from around L94800 49700 starA, you should pick up a fence which will lead you straight to the foot of Mullach Glas NE Top. There is a cairn near the top, though the actual highest point is about 30 metres away to the south. There is a good view south down the valley to Shannavara hill, and some of the myriad of lakes that dot the area south of the N59. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/681/comment/5440/
