As the OS map suggests, this mountain is covered on almost 3 sides by forest, but decided to climb it anyway. Parked at forest track entrance out the moneyneena-dungiven road (C 726 022 E) Walked down the track into the altnaheglish valley which leads onto a good walk round banagher dam. The forest round this part has been harvested in the last year or so. Where the track does a u-turn, following the river, i continued on almost straight in the direction of crockalougha. Getting up the initial bank after crossing the river is no slouch of a job. A stick being a must which are handy to come by thanks to the remains of the deforestation. Once into the woods i just blindly headed off in the general direction knowing as long as i veered left i would come out in the clearing. As it happened i pretty much came out bang on top of crockalougha. The view is kind of limited at the top, (although mullaghmore, lough neagh and sl gallion do suffice!), but i really enjoyed the walk up as it combined the climb with also the eerie silence and isolation of walking through the woods, something about that feeling of raw nature i guess. Any-who, had lunch at the top and then followed the edge of the forest to (C 723 014 F) where there was a small lake not marked on the map but have noticed from mullaghmore before. After that found the source of the altnaheglish river and followed it back to where i left the forest track. As i said enjoyed the walk loads, took about an hour all in, and also managed to get loads of dried free wood for camp fire that night - nice!
