COACHROAD. DRIVE ON THE RIGHT
Hello Gernee - could I just add my few words to Harry’s wise ones.
The Coachroad’s bite is not as bad as its bark. In other words, it appears intimidating but with caution, is safe enough.
Its most disconcerting characteristic however is to shift under you as you ascend – and in fairly large lumps.
That overcome, the last few metres would be the trickiest but with at least one flexible hip, you should do it without trouble.
Stay right as long as you can, would be my advice.
Other good Mournes gully scrambles in my book would be the Great Gully in the Western Mournes – on to Eagle Mtn, Cove gully in .. you got it – Cove Mtn and also perhaps surprisingly in not such a big hill, Wee Binnian (or it might be Moolieve).
There are also a couple in Douglas Crag which perhaps you might want to leave for another day – and if you want a fun scramble with a bit of difficulty at the top, the scree face of Crom is hard to beat.
Hope that helps and if it doesn’t just ask …..
Gernee

Summit Summary
Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 a week ago.
This oddly named hill is more a very minor heathery bump incorporated into the system of tracks laid out by the Wicklow Mountains National Park. It can be reached from any of the western car-parks...

Cupidstown Hill: Enhance this with a visit to Oughterard
Bunsen7 3 days ago.
Yes, perhaps this is not a very noteworthy hill. Cupidstown and Saggart Hill represent largely forest topped outliers of the Dublin/Wicklow range split from higher summits to the East by the N81. ...
