Ben Crom and the reservoir to which it lends it's name as viewed from the slopes of Slievenaglogh (the smaller one). This view of the reservoir and the dam, especially on cloudy days like this, used to scare the bejaysus out of me when I was young! I think the image is like something from Lord of the Rings - almost as if you should dare venture into that valley, you probably won't be returning again! Ben Crom is, none the less a fine central point from which to view the fine Mourne panarama, just watch your footing on the eastern side! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/404/comment/1206/
