tsunami on Eagle Mountain, 2004

I took what I thought was the easiest route up - starting at Yellow Water carpark - followed path onto forest road and followed this up and round to the right. The path comes to an end just above the tree line. Crossed a stile and walkd straight up through a lot of heather and bog, to the top of Finlieve. Nice walk from here to the summit of Shanlieve (it gets drier eventually) and much easier than the steep pull up along Batts wall. Followed Batts wall to Eagle Mountain - Great views down the Pigeon Rock river and Windy Gap, aswell as over the High Mournes and Spelga. Followed Batts wall back down Eagle Mt and Shanlieve, picking up two very wet feet on the way! Be warned!! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/217/comment/1039/
