PHOTO: Looking down onto Hen Mountain from Cock.

Start at Letrim Lodge Car Park and walk a loop following Bat’s Wall over Hen, Cock, Pigeon, Eagle and back over Pierces Castle, Altataggart mountain, Rocky River and along the minor road to complete the loop. The climb up eagle pushed me and challenged my fitness level. The descent along Bats wall was very steep. The large boulders were sharp and slippy, making it quite dangerous in places.
Crossing 'Castle Bog' to Pierces Castle was very boggy. Every footstep had to be carefully chosen with the odd one bringing the black stuff just over the edge of the boot unto the ankles. It was simply a matter then of ´joining the limestone track and crossing Altaggart Mountain, past the little disused reservoir from the former Newry Country Council, across Shankys River and back to the car.
That's 5 mountains and a 16km walk in 6 1/2 hours. Highly recommended for a hot summers day. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/447/comment/1380/
