Do It Different
Do something different. Remember those plastic bazookies of the 1960s that fired ping pong balls at younger siblings. Construct a syringe with similar properties, acquire a golf ball size of plastic explosive….. and a Blackface ewe. Better still, do a classic Mourne route …… but different! At the Bearnagh/More col, lit out up the well trod path, Doan-side of the wall, until you touch the slabs. The Bearnagh Slabs provide succour and warmth for the little wee rock people that make that jingly metal noise when affecting a vertical ascent into pointlessness. Then stick left of the wall and North, view panoramas of boggling proportions, over the counterpane postcard countryside that cossets Castlewellan and at the wall-side of the summit-Tor, lep down through virtually uncharted territory, over outcrops, incrops, upcrops and best of all … downcrops. This roller-coaster rides finishes all too soon above a small and scary crag over Hare’s Gap, four men, two women a dog and a two ravens fighting for the crisps. This weekend do something different - or you could stay at home at watch TV.

Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 a week ago.
