Also known as Black Mountain [OSI]. The more common name, Clermont Carn, appeared on the old ½ map. This name records the association with Lord Clermont of Ravensdale, whose residence was Ravensdale Park in the early 19th century.   Clermont Carn is the 527th highest summit in Ireland.

Continuing our route from Slieve Foye, we took a path through the October ferns just across the road and north of the car park at Windy Gap. Heading for Carnavaddy there is a climb for 150 metres across mixed terrain until a plateau is reached and then a long gradual rise to the first summit along the route to Black Mountain. From here on there is a pleasant path which was being used by mountain bikers which leads up and down to a further mini summit before Black Mountain is arrived at as shown in this photo which was taken at J 112 142 C. We enjoyed the wide angled views from the summit in the company of others who had the luxury of driving in cars all the way to the top. They were interested in our trip from Carlingford and offered us a lift back but at this stage our day was only half done. The trip back to Windy Gap was along much the same route as we came but we enjoyed the exellent views to Warrenpoint, Rostrevor and Carlingford Lough and also as we neared the gap we were able to select a homeward route along the southern slopes of Slieve Foy as visibilty was excellent at this stage. See return route to Carlingford village on Slieve Foye webpage. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/434/comment/2022/
