eflanaga on Rocky Mountain, 2007
by eflanaga  19 Jul 2007
Rocky Mountain was one of the first Mountains in the Mournes I climbed back in 2004. I have climbed it on a number of occasions since, usually as the first or last summit in a particular circuit. The picture below was taken from the summit back in September 2004. Rocky on this occasion was the last of a short circuit that started at Leitrim Car Park and took in Altataggart, Pierce's Castle, Tornamrock & Rocky. There is a small cairn of stones on the summit but the picture I took off that was out of focus. The picture looks over Altataggart & Tievedockaragh with Carlingford Lough & The Cooley's visible (centre.) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/809/comment/2774/
