Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  3 Nov 2011
Carn Mountain is a top that most walkers are more likely to visit as part of a longer walk along the Mourne Wall to Slieve Muck. To climb Carn park at the car park on the Slievenaman Road J280 279 A. Cross the road and once over the stile follow the stoney track SE. After 150m, at a fork, go right, up hill, to the end of the track J284 269 B. From here go due E across the boggy grass, heather and peat hagged surface to the col and the Mourne Wall J291 268 C. Turn right and follow the wall, initially over Carn's lower top J290 264 D, and then on to the top proper close to a wall junction J288 260 E. Return by way of ascent. Alternatively continue to follow the wall W (not S) and then S to the top of Slieve Muck J281 250 F before following it down WNW to the B27. At the road turn right and follow along NNE for 2.5k back to the start. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/300/comment/5060/
