Chimney Rock Mountain (Slieve Aoire)
So.... I used the well laid out track from Bloody Bridge to the Mourne Wall and then walked to the crest of the wall before turning and finding the path to the summit through the crags along the way. It was beautiful weather. I proudly showed off the views from "my" newest mountain, since, disgracefully, I've never been to the Mournes before. Coming down the steep slopes on the other side, heading for Crock Horn Stream, I ran into problems.... the access to the main road has been blocked in the age old fashion: the gorse was well over six foot tall in the places boasting proper gates. It took a good hour of scrambling to find the least painful (!) way to get through and down the final slopes only to find a brand new gate blocking our exit to the road, with new signs saying the area was "private - no access". We squeezed out through the gap between pillar and gate, and after a 200m walk down the road, we picked up the track leading to the shore and made our way back to the Bloody Bridge Carpark via the Mourne Coastal path. So, my question is: does anyone know this route? Is there an alternative access point from the Crock Horn Stream to the Road? It was such a beautiful route, I'd love to use it again, but without invading private land. Suggestions welcomed.

Crockmulroney: Good summit for Carn-baggers
Colin Murphy 4 days ago.
A fine hill with a well defined summit and great views. Plenty of parking spots along the R254 directly to the south of the summit. From there it's a relatively simple 1km climb to the top.
