I suggest that anyone intending to climb Cock Mountain should climb Hen Mountain to the North West first, and use it as a springboard to Cock Mountain, it is uninspiring otherwise. Very steep from the North West, with some loose stony ground on the slope which can cause a problem for footing. The peak has two cairns. Great view back into County Armagh towards Slieve Gullion which can prove to be a stunning site in late evening. A good trek can begin with Hen Mountain, then cock Mountain, following on to Pigeon Rock Mountain then down on to the road beside Spelga Dam. The trek can end here after around three hours, or can continue on to Slieve Muck to the East of the road, and then follow the Wall for one of the most inspiring Mountain Treks in Ireland, The Mourne wall walk, taking in Carn Mountain, Slieve Loughshannagh, Slieve Meelbeg, Slieve Bearnagh, Slievenaglogh, Slieve Corragh, Slieve Commedagh and finishing with Slieve donard, then down into Newcastle. I suggest one or two overnights for the Mourne Wall Walk to fully appreciate it. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/447/comment/921/
