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 107th highest place in Ireland.

This photo shows the Ben Crom Dam from below Ben Crom and Slievelamagan and its col with Slieve Binnian on the far side. From the col on the route back to Newcastle Slievelamagan represents a tough 300 metre climb as part of the seven sevens. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/106/comment/2507/
