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.

Arriving at gaps when your trek takes you from summit to summit in the Mournes such as between Slieve Meelmore and Slieve Bearnagh you can very easily think you have reached low ground without realising that the to arrive at the gap itself is a substantial climb from sea level. The gap between Meelmore and Bearnagh is at the 520 m contour which is higher than many mountains in Ireland or even on mountainviews. This photo taken from the western slopes of Slievenaglogh shows the Trassey Track as it diverts towards the gap between Meelmore and Bearnagh together with the Bearnagh Slabs and shows the true nature of the climb to the gap. Most of Meelmore above the gap is hidden in cloud. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/83/comment/2004/
