Follow the wall
by paulocon  25 Aug 2010
Followed Batts wall from Deers Meadow onto Pigeon Rock, Slievemoughanmore and then onto Eagle. A grand walk for a Sunday morning with enough ascent and descent to provide a decent workout without having to encounter any of the boggier ground mentioned on other comments where a different approach was taken. The summit cairn is situated a short walk from the wall and acts as a superb viewpoint across to the Higher Mournes as well as down onto Spelga Dam. From Eagle, we made the short crossing to Shanlieve. On the way back, added a bit of variety by contouring around the eastern side of Eagle which gives superb views along the valley as well as the cliff-face of the mountain. Only 2 mountains left in the Mournes until I have visited all those mentioned in Paddy Dillon's 'Mountains of Ireland' book! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/217/comment/6055/
