Hello Tsunami - how’s the form? Your route coming up off that back-of-beyond is good and you are right of course that the view turns what would be a fairly plodding and squelchy trail, into a glorious panorama. It wouldn’t be my choice to initiate the Mournes virgin, although I was that virgin myself in the very same spot - perhaps a million years ago….. About coming up from Crom to Bearnagh, I know nothing: the reverse however stays in my dulling memory forever. The Bearnagh bog is a complete B/ocks. Climb up on to 4’of peat, say hello to a Jack snipe, climb back down into stagnant bog, climb up on to 4’ of peat, etc, etc ….. and then stand atop the thundering drop into Crom reservoir which of course is represented by the map contours one chose to ignore. About-face and climb up on to 4’of peat, say hello to a Jack snipe, blah blah….. until you get back to where you started. Just completely minging. Would you not take the fotografiser up the Disney routes and let him get the zillionth shot of Dundrum Bay or the wall to Hare’s Gap or Crom Reservoir off Binnian? Or maybe I’ve just got old, safe and like my socks dry. Incidentally where you bin hiding? - and “unwraps” is just pure class!
