Summer Ascent of Sl. Loughshannagh
by cranlum  15 Jul 2013
After an amazing spell of weather with temperatures approaching 30 degrees we waited for things to cool down before this climb. On the day it was around 23 degrees with a light cloud base at around 3-3500 feet.

Starting at Ott Mt Car Park the ascent was very good over a fairly good path of mixed stone and trodden moorland to the wall and col between Carn Mt and Sl. Lougshannagh. The ground was amazingly dry under foot after the hot spell and we quickly reached the col after just over a mile to be greeted by a wonderful view south of Lough Shannagh, Ben Crom, Binnian etc

The final ascent to the summit was fairly short with a fair to moderate gradient over good dry ground with few loose rocks and the wall providing a shelter to the intermittent light westerly breeze. At the summit the view is a wonderful panorama over much of the Mourne range.

This climb is a great introduction to the beauty of the Mournes and in good weather ideal for taking younger children - I would highly recommend it for families. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/245/comment/15041/
