HOT WATER OFF CHIMNEY
madeleineblue - I am not exactly sure about your route, at least by its description but I have a fair idea where you mean. Heading shorewards off Chimneyrock, the best and only civilised route is directly down the course of the Midpace River, emerging bright and shiny at the Bloody Bridge carpark. The alternative as you describe if I understand, is to come off above Carr's Face on a direct route to the sea. The Mournes are in genereal not troubled with access problems apart from a couple of spots and one is the patch you describe - you were lucky not to get into a thing with the farmer who is reputed to get into things. Barbed wire and whins are the order of the day because he is in no mood to facilitate access through his land - so if you are thinking of going back, please be careful. That said, you can access Chimneyrock from roughly the same angle, if you come halfway up the Bloody Bridge track first, then cross the river and ascend from there. A lovely, quiet, untravelled and unfussy route to the prettiest top in the Mournes.
