A substantial tower has been built on the summit. The spot height is given as 704m on the 1:25,000 map, but this does not square with the contours, which only go up to 680m. Spellack (speilic, ' a splintery rock') is a spur on Slieve Meelmore.   Slieve Meelmore is the 136th highest place in Ireland.

There seem to be some mix-up about the height of Slieve Meelmore, as csd has noticed below. 704m on the 1:25K map and no marked height on the 1:50K. The point where the 704m spot height is shown seems to be at the little tower rather than at the summit, which is clearly about 50m south (see picture). A GPS reading at the summit however gave 694m and Paddy Dillon gives 680m. If you check the contour rings on the 1:25K there is obviously some mistake as the highest contour ring is 680m, making the 704m spot height impossible. As well as mapping problems, the name is rather odd too, Slieve Meelmore being lower than Slieve Meelbeg, but that's another can of worms...

Sunday 9th April 2006 my wife and I Started our walk from Meelmore Lodge walking along the lane upto the stile at the stone wall. We crossed over and walked around the base of Slieve Meelmore until we reached the rough pathway halfway up the valley between Meelbeg and Meelmore and then followed the river ontowards the Mourne wall on the shoulder between the two.Watch your footing here, as the path runs out the ground gets a bit uneven and is at times boggy.
When we got to the wall crossed over the stile a snow storm came in very fast sweeping up the valley rushed over the wall then it was a white out. We continued on to the top of Meelmore we could only see snow so turned back the way we came. When we arrived at the stile between Meelmore and Meelbeg the snow lightened up so we climbed Meelbeg as we reached the top the snow hit again and was now 2-3 inches deep we had to slow down as it became very slippy underfoot. We returned to Meelmore Lodge the way we came. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/138/comment/2266/

Well Adrian, far be it from me, but Cork or Kerry, that seems to be that. While we are on the subject of resolutions, Gribster and your piece on Meelmore - a precisely accurate account and your enthusiasm to promulgate it is impressive. I am sure this is an oversight but do you also have proposals regarding the challenge walk title. Perhaps the “Mourne Under and Over Sevens” or “The Mourne up to Seven Sevens” or of course “The Mournes Six Sevens” and we could just keep Meelmore out of it. What do you think?
