Harry Goodman on Crockaneel, 2009

Climbed Crockaneel on 10 December 2009 by the route described in three5four0's summit comments. To avoid at least some tarmac we followed the signed Corratavey Glen Trail high level path to Corratavey Bridge. This is a walk well suited to a short winter day. While we went out and back by three5four0's route it would be possible on the way down to extend the walk by continuing around by the Ballypatrick Forest Drive and completing the full 6 miles back to the car park. The Glens of Antrim Activity Map 1 : 25,000 shows the various paths. This would have the advantage of passing an ancient Horned Cairn on the way. The summit of Crockaneel is flat with numerous small ponds. The views are extensive around a full 360 degrees. When we were there the Mull of Kintyre was especially clear lit by a bright winter sun. In comments three5four0 gives a map reference at a fence which crosses the summit area as a useful navigational aid in foul weather. I find it hard to imagine why anyone would want to climb Crockaneel in such conditions! This said I would also suggest that, whatever the weather, walkers include a map reference for the end of the path where it leads out on to the open hillside D1852833645 A. Given the flat featureless top of the hill it might not be easy to find the way back to the start of this path on the way down, especially if one wanders around on the top. One final thought, it may appeal to some walkers to approach this hill directly from the A2 near Loughareema starting at D2100034850 B and following the fence SW for just over two kilometres to the top. However as I have not attempted this route I cannot give any information as to the underfoot conditions one might expect to find. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/811/comment/4286/
