For a small hill Slieve Beg has a fierce summit. It is simple to reach the summit from the Brandy Pad but the top has sheer drops on its SE side. These sheer drops include the infamous Devils Coach Road. McClimber gave us a most interesting talk about it when a few of us renegades broke off the main Scavenger Walk in August to pass near Slieve Beg. I recently came back to climb Slieve Beg and see the fearsome gully.

Most other photos show the Coach Road from across the bog. Mine was taken from above looking down. I even captured a brave soul on his/her way down, and this gives a good sense of scale. Slieve Beg is not a summit where you could be inattentive as those cliffs would be very unforgiving. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/297/comment/4221/
