This is a remote and isolated Carn almost 5km from the nearest road.
One approach is from the north, where there is parking for a single car by the side of the road at A (B95960 14988). See Moylenanav page for initial ascent. From there head directly south, dropping down to 300m in the col at point B (B96606 11883), where you’ll encounter a boggy, peat hag-riven area. Continue SSW up a gentler slope for 2km to reach the broad summit area, marked by a large cairn.
Alternatively you can approach from the SE starting at a forest entrance at point C (B99559 09737). Please be aware that although this minor road off the R250 appears on Google Maps, it is extremely rough (stone-littered and with multiple potholes) and great care should be taken driving it. Proceed up track, turn left almost immediately and then walk SW through woods for about 1km. The track ends in some rough but walkable ground that leads onto open hillside. Walk 2.5k NW across wet but navigable gently rising ground, at which point there is an area of peat hags for a few hundred metres. The last section is more grassy with the occasional small boulder before you arrive at the broad summit area. Allow four hours for the return trip.

Resplendent views from a small hill
by three5four0 23 May 2010
A fine view point indeed. From the Bluestacks to Slieve League & SlieveTooey round to Slieve Snaght, Bingorms, Drumnalifferny with Errigal poking over them to Moylenanav. Worth the long walk out for the view alone and not another walker in sight anywhere! Linkback:

No Crock of gold on this one
by eamonoc 23 Jan 2022
Up for a few days walking in Donegal, visited Moylenanav and took a look at Crockastoller away in the distance and decided to take the long trek out to it, headed towards west shoulder of Crocskakallabgh and dropped down steeply to an extremely wet boggy col riven with numerous peat hags, every step took complete concentration as the going was very wet and rough eventually reached drier ground closer to the top of Crockastoller 7km from starting point. A very remote top surrounded on all approaches by very boggy rough wet ground. Headed off in a northerly direction towards minor top Croaghacullin 435m OS sheet 6, the first km was over stony dry ground only to be followed by another km through torturous terrain where again peathags abound, steps carefully taken eventually lead to the stony top of Croaghacullin, followed by another wet 2km back to the start point. A tough very demanding 13km walk in the very wet Glendowan Mts. Linkback:

Hot day on Crockastroller
by Wilderness 1 Jul 2018
Beautiful views of the Bluestack mountains and the surrounding area.
I started my walk from the car park at Lough Barra and made my own way to the top of Moylenanav summit. I then walked the horseshoe in clockwise direction until I reached Crockastroller. From here I made my own way back to Lough Barra passing the small Croaghanarroo hill on my left.
The route passes by so many peat hags and some deep boggy ground in places, so be careful!!!
It was very hot and the horseflies were out on full force; they were an annoyance but they didn't ruin my day. Linkback:
