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.

This mountain was done as part of a good days walk from Donard Park in Newcastle. We went to 'The Saddle' between S. Donard and S. Commedagh to Slieve Beg and Cove Mountain. After reaching the top of Lamagan we then dropped down into the valley and returned to Newcastle via The Saddle again.
The photo is from the top of Slieve Lamagan looking West over Ben Crom, Doan and Slieve Muck.
While at the summit of the mountain, Late July 2003, I was able to make out a series of four or five angular peaks at a bearing of 300deg (i.e. approx NE) beyond the rounded tops of the Sperrins. I later worked out the these must be Errigal and the Derryveagh Mountains. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/106/comment/952/
