Short Summary created by wicklore,  14 May 2011
There are two Rocky Mountains in the Mourne Mountains. The lower one at 404 metres is situated in the western Mournes near Pigeon Rock and Cock Mountains. This higher one, at 534 metres, is situated in the eastern Mournes. Along with Slieve Binnian, Rocky Mountain guards the entrance to the Annalong Valley and commands fine views of the valley, surrounding mountains, the coast and the Irish sea.

One approach is to follow the Bloody Bridge track starting at J389 270 A. Follow the track for about 4 kms up to the Mourne Wall and the Brandy Pad at J353 268 B. Turn left and follow the wall for just under 2 kms south where it skirts beneath the summit of Rocky Mountain. At approx J353 255 C strike out uphill for the short steep climb to the top. It is best to stay to the west of the wall as you approach from the Brandy Pad as it can be very difficult to find a place to climb over it due to its height on this stretch! As well as excellent views of Binnian, Lamagan, Cove and Slieve Beg, Rocky Mountain offers a fine view of the ridge of Chimney Rock Mountain across the valley to the NE.
