Overlooks the Spelga Dam and the Deer's Meadow, the source of the River Bann. It is surprising to think that this river rises less than 10 miles from the coast near Newcastle, and yet it empties into the sea near Coleraine.   Slieve Muck is the 160th highest summit in Ireland.

It's all physiological

Muck and myself have a history. Our first encounter came as part of a very enjoyable circuit of Spelga Dam, following Batts Wall to it's meeting point with the Mourne Wall. We had got on well that day, event taking some time to enjoy the views of the high Mournes and Spelga Dam.


Our second encounter came at the end of an ultimately doomed 2-day stint at walking the Mourne Wall, the day starting out in baking sunshine but ending up in a heavy mist stirred around Muck's slopes by a storm-force wind. Muck wasn't in a good mood and it was taking it out on us! Climbing muck as evening turned into night on that occassion, we had literally hit the wall... totally 'blown-up', our stuffed packs pulling us back one step for every two steps we took forward. At one stage, we even considered the possibility of pitching tents on a rock on the side of a relentlessly steep section of ground that just kept coming.

I had the second encounter in mind as I dropped off Slievenaglogh on a recent attempt at walking the Mourne Wall. Crossing Banns road, I could clearly see the sections on which we had struggled. This time however, Muck didn't put up anywhere near the same fight. Without the mist to hide it's tricky sections, it was a different beast altogether and taking a bit of time to pick a route away from the parts where the Wall gives way to crags, it's possible to have a relatively straightforward walk to the top.
