Longitude: -5.966147, Latitude: 54.166118 , Easting: 332887, Northing: 326033 Prominence: 197.18m,   Isolation: 1.3km
ITM: 732807 826038,   GPS IDs, 6 char: Slvlmg, 10 char: Slvlmgn
Bedrock type: Granite granophyre, (Mourne Mountains granite)

So named, according to Harris (author of The Antient and Present State of the County of Down), because it has to be climbed in a crawling position. The southern slopes are, indeed, relentlessly steep. An alternative name, Sliabh Snámháin, has the same meaning. Below Lamagan Slabs is a spot called Percy Bysshe, which suggests a connection with the poet Shelley.   Slievelamagan is the 109th highest summit in Ireland.

The “Seven Sevens”. The intricacies of which I know nothing, the movers and shakers of which I know nothing and the finer objectives of which I know nothing. Essentially the thing is to ascend all the Mournes over seven hundred metres, in one day - such a day allotted, being evidenced by members of something, standing in yellow jackets at points and ….. pointing.
I expect some people sprint the course - backwards, between somersaults. I myself chose to walk it, in flagrant disregard of the event proper: in secret. It is manageable for regular track rats, but gruelling. Kick off at Carrick Little and zoom up the beautiful Annalong track to the Castles. Legover the Saddle and up/down Donard to Commedagh: blitz the ridge to Hare’s Gap. Wheel round Bearnagh and up Meelmore thereoff to Meelbeg and reverse to the saddle between, down to the bog and up Bearnagh.You may wish to be sick at this point: be it, because in another hour you may be anything (a dandelion or a warthog) and not know it. To the Brandy Pad and up Slieve Beg. Then Cove: breakfast on a hair trigger: but sure there are only two left: ONLY Lamagan, ONLY Binnian! Atop Lamagan and your legs have become candy floss and you’re singing something from South Pacific. Then Binnian like a mirage, edges back as you edge forward. The next hour could be years or seconds then you’re in the car in the passenger seat, hunting for the steering wheel. Take this route, because when you come off, you’re only minutes on a tarred road from the car. All others close in endless trails where you could could easily succumb and wake up looking at a crow with your one good eye. Utterly pointless and maybe obligatory.
