My approach to Carn was from Doan. I left Doan and followed a track NW until I met the SW-NE track below Slieve Loughshannagh. I turned left to follow this SW up to the Mourne Wall at J291 268. I followed the wall up to the summit of Carn which was straightforward. The clouds, which had abated over the last couple of hours, were back to obscure my view. The summit arrived quickly and the cloud magically lifted to give me a view of Slieve Muck. I also got the opportunity to follow the route of the Mourne wall as it veered west from the summit before veering south to climb up to the summit of Muck. Unfortunately the cloud rushed back to deny me the views that, in Bleck Cra’s words, were the best to be had of the Mournes. However I was more than satisfied with all I had seen so far today and I set off into the clouds for Slieve Muck. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/300/comment/3385/
