Climbed up here for the first time today. Used the fantastic secure carpark at Meelmore Lodge and went up the Trassey Track to the Hares Gap. Following the Brandy Pad around towards the shoulder between Commedagh and Beg and then took the short hop to the summit. The main reason I was here today was not for a strenuous walk, I would have taken in Lamagan and Cove first if that was my goal - no, today was about curiosity. From reading the other comments here and hearing tales from more experienced walkers I decided that I needed to see the Devils Coachroad for myself. Against better judgement, when those more experienced men told me not to, I was here on my own. "Ah, sure what would they know?!" I told myself. "I'm young, fit(ish), a good geographer and mapreader, and I've been around enough of the Mournes! I'll be grand!" So, I got to the summit of Beg, and began poking around for the Coachroad. The view from the summit of this small mountain is reason enough in itself to come here without this scree run, especially back towards Bearnagh and a goor perspective of Donard and Commedagh. Suddenly there it was, and all those warnings came flooding back. The butterflies rose in my stomach and the palms began to sweat! But what the hell, I took a couple of tentative steps down into the chasm - a stone went from under my right foot, and is probably still rolling - thinking better of it I scrambled back to the top and took a few photos from the safety of solid ground. With the pulse still racing I decided to go down along the river and traverse across to the base of the chasm for another perspective. Grasping handfulsof heather I hauled myself across and made it onto the scree run. Photos cannot do the steepness of this slope any justice, I managed to make it about a third of the way up the chasm but was in no position to take pictures, just take in the awesome view. The picture was taken from across the valley on the Brandy Pad at the base of Donard - I think it says more than i can put into words today!
