CaptainVertigo on Cock Mountain, 2005

...."OF MOUNTAINS AND MEN"......There are some things in life that require intimacy, and others distance. I have learned to my cost that you cannot really photograph a mountain from its summit: it is about as informative as a picture of your own nether regions. But unless you have lived a while in its undulations and crevices, your attempts to describe its virtues and vices will be no more accurate than a Confession given on your behalf by your elderly Aunt. True knowledge, of men and mountains, comes from both intimacy and distance. On Sunday (1st May 05) the Zulu-esque party of "braves", of which I formed part, sped up Slievenamiskan and onto to Cock Mountain just in time to have a thick blanket of Northern Irish Mist pour down upon our four heads. We could hardly see one another , never mind the menagerie about us. So we didn't dwell on the Hen , the Pigeon or the Pig as others have done, admiring the siblings. No. We dwelt on the hallowed ground beneath us, and fumbled for the GPS...which had been left at home. Out came the compass and the struggle to hold the flapping map in the howling wind. This preceded a surreal funereal single file trek across a marsh toward the Pigeon (maybe we erred a little on the Dam side). The Zulu in us abated and we felt that humility that comes from wondering if you will ever see home again. I thought I had died and gone to Hades...well Wicklow at least. All that squelching and curves. Ugh!! But sure enough, the compass got us as far as Pigeon Rock and up ole Batt's Wall (the sheer INDUSTRY of these northerners-did they ever sleep!) to the top. As we slurped brunch the mist lifted and revealed the watering hole below, and all about the western Mournes lay sleeping, not pointy like the Zwinglian sharpies to the east, but gentle and welcoming. It was only when we crossed the road and ascended Muck that some brief moments of sun illuminated the great canvass and we saw where we had walked blindly --guided by one of the invisible forces that flows through our universe, our Home.
