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.

A crew of walkers of mixed ability (but all very able) climbed this super mountain on 2/9/06. At Hares gap we split in to two groups, those who would go over the top and those who would contour, each had a walk leader, and we would meet at the stile at the south col. Unfortunately the weather came down and visability was pretty much zero the "over the top" group aided by the great wall suffered no navigational difficultiues, while the "contour" group didn't make it to the arranged meeting point. While there was no danger, there was some confusion due wild winds, shifting mists and instant rivers of water. Phone coverage is sporadic and contact could no be made. After waiting for an amount of time, the "over the top"group left a message in the sand at the meeting point and descended. Group "contour" had encountered bad visability combined with heavy ground water creating fast rivers and had to descend rather than meet at arranged point. While everybody was safe and safe proceducres were followed, second-guessing what another group might do or what might have happened can cause some confusion and chaos. Strong leadership is required and it was this that ensured a safe return by both groups. Thanks James and Daniel. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/83/comment/2478/
