by mneary34  2 Oct 2005 On my trek Slivemoughanmore was but a stage on the way to Shanlieve. The typical Mournes wall gives a direct route albeit unrelentingly uphill as shown in the photo up Slivemoughanmore from Pigeon Rock Mountain.

by mneary34  8 Nov 2004 We followed the Wall from Pigeon Rock Mountain to Slievemoughanmore and it levels out at the 540 metre contour. In our case because of the wind direction we got more shelter by climbing on the southern side of the Wall. At the 540 metre contour we crossed over the Wall and the summit is 100 metres approx to the north. See the attached photo which was taken from the north in the valley as we headed to Cock Mountain.
