dr_banuska on Clermont Carn, 2009

Clermont Carn was the 4th summit in my multi-summit hike from Anglesey to Carnavaddy. Coming from nearby and uninspiring Black Mountain NE Top it's just a quick scramble over to the welcome sight of the minor road that runs past the masts, a road that also forms part of the popular Táin Way. I didn't feel at all guilty about walking straight up the road to the summit - witnessing a couple of cars driving up, I felt a sense of achievement and indeed superiority having walked from sea level at Cornamucklagh! Incidentally this was the only of the five peaks where I met other people; not surprisingly it seems to get a lot of people driving up to the masts to enjoy the excellent panoramic views. Luckily I didn't see much of the anti-social element that others have alluded to, although there was quite a bit of rubbish about. The views are indeed impressive: apart from the view south east to Slieve Foye, there's a great view across Carlingford Lough to Warrenpoint and the Mournes behind. Also, as with the lower peak of Clermont, this is a great spot to appreciate the beauty of the Ring of Gullion. There is also an excellent view down to the busy M1 with Jonesborough village behind it. Finally, behind the masts and the cairn that gives the peak its name, there's a pleasant view to Dundalk and its Bay, with the Dublin/Wicklow Mountains far in the distance (I'm sure I was able to pick out the distinctive profile of Great Sugar Loaf, which I had also identifed from nearby Slieve Gullion). After admiring these fine views for a time, I continued onto Carnavaddy starting from the minor track that runs down from the back of the cairn.
