Bedrock type: Granite granophyre, (Mourne Mountains granite)

This is the higher of two peaks in the Mourne Mountains called Slievenaglogh, the other being situated further south, facing Slieve Binnian across the Silent Valley. This peak is east of Hare's Gap. On the western flanks is a huge granite boulder with a scooped-out face so that it resembles a giant's seat (David Kirk, 'The Mountains of Mourne - A Celebration of a Place Apart', p. 121).   Slievenaglogh is the 322nd highest summit in Ireland.

Diamonds aren't always a girl's best friend

A steep climb up a series of steps (ouch) from the Hare's Gap to the summit of Slievenaglogh rewards the climber with incredible views over Slieve Bearnagh, Slieve Meelmore and Ben Crom Reservoir. I didn't see any diamonds (not counting the three intrepid souls who, like me, braved this last summit after having been put through our paces by the nimble and very lithe Bleck Cra on Scavvy IV), but the granite weathered and eroded into skeletal-like fingers near the summit was pretty amazing. I never was much for diamonds anyway. Give me a view like this any day... Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/304/comment/6076/

People disregard Slievenaglogh generally because of its lack of height and challenge to the seasoned hillwalker. But, there is more to keep you interested on this little summit than on many bigger peaks. For one, it is another one of those fantastic windows to the past which the Mournes like to throw at us - much like Meelmore, Donard and the Analong Valley, there is abundant evidence of the work of the mourne stone mason , none more so than a wonderful couple of millstones which never quite made it to the mills despite the obvious hours of effort put into their creation. I say two because I've been told there are - as yet I have only located one (if anyone knows plaes inform me!). The pic shows how Slievenaglogh is a very nice approach to Commedagh especially on the north side of the wall (one of the many mourne wall stiles has been placed just below the summit to make this option easier).

What the Captain saw when he peered into a stagnant pool on Slievenaglogh on a warm Sunday afternoon in April 2005. Teeming with life, and a sample of Navan Hillwalkers feasting on sweetmeats, caviars and ham sandwiches. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/304/comment/1659/

Bleck Cra on Slievenaglogh, 2005

“Glogh!" It’s like the soft, liquid escape of some spit spirit. Slievenaglogh. From the Trassey or Annalong tracks, a Slieve-ish. From Commedagh and South of the wall, if you’re dreaming, you’ll miss it. North of the wall if you’re dreaming, your family will miss YOU. Last Sunday was a “why” day - blustering squalls and buckshot rain. “Why?” we grin manically, plodding knee-deep in black bog. A saunter off Commedagh for no good reason (like the saunter on) - sure you couldn’t see your eyes. A propos de fell runners …. there are some things I don’t get: mountain biking (up the way) heads the list, a woman witnessed pushing a pram up Beinn Lomond comes a close second, walking poles fight for third and fell running …... To be honest, it irks me that I’ll never be up to it, as long as there’s French wine and Italian food. But so many grey, drawn faces and the conviction that gravity CAN and WILL be beaten. The only boy beats gravity is Mr Crow and one day you may meet for dinner. But to Slieve of the Glogh. Little to make song and dance about, other than the fabulous Diamond Rocks - one of these odd Mournes volcanic pillar jobs, like the Castles on Commedagh and the Back Castles on Binnian, ‘cept this time underfoot! On a fat, lazy, confident ridge, they come as a complete shock and if you’re snoozing, will give you wobbly legs. Suddenly soft moss and indolent burnt bog defer to precipitous breath-taking drops and you have to shake the lemming genes out of your system. There are various ways off her, but clatter on to Hares Gap, this time South of the wall or you’ll join the diners therein….., from above. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/304/comment/1429/

Slievenaglogh when heading west towards it from Slieve Corragh is arrived at quite quickly and opens up great aspects to Slieve Bearnagh and Slieve Meelmore. This is the view from Slieve Corragh to Slievenaglogh Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/304/comment/2006/

Diamonds... what diamonds?
by paulocon  14 May 2010
When your legs are tired, the steps leading from Hare's Gap up to Sleivenaglogh really can be very unforgiving. I was more than glad to step aside to let a man and his son pass and was absolutely delighted to stop and have a chat as the man revealed his deep-held physological fear of Bearnagh after he had come to an abrupt stop halfway up it's relentless slopes on a previous assault. Seems like we all have our own particular demons!
Slievenaglogh is a pretty unassuming mountain - I even somehow managed to miss the Diamond Rocks as I was busy concentrating on the bigger fish called Commedagh and Donard that lay ahead. The summit is adorned by a handy wee cairn from which the way ahead to Commedagh can be studied. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/304/comment/4729/
