This is the lower of two peaks in the Mourne Mountains called Slievenaglogh, the other being situated further north near Hare's Gap. This Slievenaglogh overlooks the Silent Valley Reservoir, constructed in the 1920s to supply water for Belfast. Before it was flooded, the Silent Valley was known as the 'Happy Valley'. Labourers from the Happy Valley constructed the Mourne Wall for the Belfast and District Water Commissioners to delimit the catchment area. It is 2-2.5m high and 1m thick, encloses 9,000 acres of land (3,600 hectares) and passes over the summit of many of Mourne's highest peaks.   Slievenaglogh is the 745th highest summit in Ireland.

A nuisance to be encountered
by paulocon  8 May 2010
Other than the fact that The Mourne Wall runs across it's summit, Slievenaglogh would probably be rarely climbed. I have climbed it twice, both as part of a walk along the Mourne Wall and in both instances, I have seen it as something of a nuisance that had to be encountered.

The ground between Silent Valley and Slievenaglogh is probably the boggiest and least pleasant along the wall. As mentioned elsewhere, the wall initially swings away from Slievenaglogh and the temptation is to take a short-cut in a straight line to the mountain but this is not to be recommended unless you have packed diving gear! In fact, the ground is so wet that it would appear to have swallowed up a section of a seperate wall (perhaps the Mourne Wall used to run across this boggy ground before being rebuilt).

Sticking close to the wall will make for the best Progress and as the ground starts rising, it dries out and gives way to a rocky but short climb to the top of Slievenaglogh. The small summit cairn is on the far side of the wall and gives great views across to Slieve Muck. Views to the North give way to the unmistakable summit of Doan as well as Ben Crom Reservoir and Slieve Binnian.

Probably one of my least favourite summits in the Mournes. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/635/comment/4689/
