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 324th highest place in Ireland.

Diamonds aren't always a girl's best friend
by kernowclimber  1 Sep 2010
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/
