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.

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/
