For every moment when you question your sanity as you struggle through heather and bog to some nondescript summit, there are moments of pure inspiration where your decision to drag yourself out of bed at 5am makes perfect sense. Arriving at the summit of Anglesey, I had one of the latter moments as the sun briefly sat in the smidgen of space between the horizon and the seemingly ever-constant low-lying cloud cover and threw down it's rays to magically illuminate Carlingford Lough and the slopes of Slieve Foye. I had intended to take in Clermont after Anglesey prior to heading into work but I decided instead to sit at the summit and relax while taking in nature's brief yet spectactular show. On days like today, peak-bagging can take a back seat.

As mentioned by others, there can be no doubt that the cairn on Anglesey does not mark the true summit of the mountain, that would seem to be the rocky hump closeby. There can also be no doubt that the cairn was placed there as it marks something of an idealogical summit of the mountain in that it is the part of the mountain that offers the most spectactular views. The superb vista runs from the mountains of Mourne leading down to Rostrevor, Warrenpoint and Carlingford Lough across to the slopes of Foye and onto Carnavaddy with it's magnificant cairn and Clermont Carn with it's not so magnificent transmission mast. It's a view that you will never tire of be if sampled from Anglesey or any of the other tops along the range. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/699/comment/4013/
