BEARNAGH ROCKS
Thanks moac for your warning about the Devilís Ladder. Similar unfolds, albeit less dramatically on Slieve Bearnagh in the Mournes. At the best of times, anything within 30 yards south of the wall, threatens to break free and hurl itself into the glens. It is a wise man who currently takes great care beneath the hill proper after the first pull up - and as always, above and around the slabs.
Of course there is nothing new in this. It being Ireland and it being almost Spring. Just a case of vigilance until the thaw heads north.
Mountainviewer, maclimber, me old mate (itís true - very old), is now dedicating his considerable intellect - acquired at the expense of the Northern Ireland taxpayer and for all we know a short stay in the Kesh - to some do-good, busy-body, interfering enterprise, self-designated to fix the Mournes - like you would fix a kettle or a Ford Cortina. After a dignity-sapping Monday-to-Friday of going where someone else wants, one of the pleasures of hillwalking is to go where YOU want. So now instead of struggling up the burn at Bloody Bridge, according to your inclination, you are channelled into some lana bus, appointed by this busy enterprise to make you a better human being. Looking forward to the zebra crossings, lay-bys and cantilever bridges.
Anyway should you find yourself in Newry - ie lost - there is a very good Sale on in the Trespass shop - good gear, low prices. For example, serious gloves with waterproof overmitt dedahdedah - yours not for 35quid, not for 25quid, not for 20quid, but 14.95. Even have wrist lanyards which when configured, do leave you expecting your Mammy to spit on her hanky and wipe your face. Perfect for not climbing the Devilís Ladder.

A small hill, but as it can form part of an extended walk, has some very steep sides, and has some of the best views in the country, it cannot be judged by size alone. I started at the car park at...
