Bedrock type: Granite granophyre, (Mourne Mountains granite)

One of the most recognisible peaks of Mourne and perhaps the only one that necessitates removing hands from pockets. Slieve Bernagh gets its name from the two rocky granite tors which crown the summit and the gap or saddle betweeen them.   Slieve Bearnagh is the 85th highest summit in Ireland.

Photo taken on our first visit to Bearnagh, its an amazing mountain for its views and the climb,
parked in the car park near Trassey bridge and followed the river up to Hares Gap , crossed the wall , turned right and climbed the steep steps and found the wall again ,followed it to the top. Had our lunch here and spent a while exploring the rocks and taking photos.We followed the wall towards Meelmore, its a very steep descent , keep to the left of the wall as there are dangerous drops on the right half way down. We got to the col and turned right and followed the track back to the river .We've climbed Bearnagh several times since and always get the same enjoyment .
