Myself and the dog climbed Anglesey as part of a 5 summit hike in the Cooleys (the other 4 being Clermont, Black Mountain NE Top, Clermont Cairn and Carnavaddy in that order). I parked at the same pub car park as eflanaga - thanks for the tip! Was a bit wary about leaving the car there for so long and not even buying one drink but I didn't have any problems. I followed the same route: uphill and around to the first crossroads, take right and uphill towards the Co. Armagh border. Just before the border, which is marked by a stream, there is a forest track on the left. I followed this and then after a short distance when the track curves round to the right, I crossed a wire fence and started making my way up across open hillside. As eflanaga says, there is a wall which I followed for a while until it and the forest curve off to the right (west). I found this mountain deceptively tough going I must say, maybe because it was the first summit of the day, but I kept thinking the summit was in sight only to find higher slopes kept emerging. The terrain is pretty tough though and I found it best to keep to my right as there was less undergrowth, until I met a wire fence that brought me pretty much to the summit. I actually didn't even spot the small cairn at first, and as others have said it's clear that a rocky outcrop a little beyond it is the true summit. The views are great from this hill: even from the lower slopes there are great views across Carlingford Lough towards Warrenpoint and the High Mournes beyond. As you progress upwards the views open out to include Slieve Foye and interesting views towards Camlough Mountain and the lower eastern hills of the Ring of Gullion, then Slieve Gullion itself and finally the surprisingly welcome sight of the transmitter on Clermont Cairn. I could even make out the Belfast hills and the distinctive profile of Slieve Gallion in the Sperrins, and maybe even a narrow slither of Lough Neagh. Anglesey was a nice start point for my multi-summit hike, only thing was there was a long road walk back to the car when I finally made it down from Carnavaddy.
