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 place in Ireland.
