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.

Bleck Cra on Slieve Bearnagh, 2008
by Bleck Cra  7 Jan 2008
“ It isn’t that gully.” “Yes it is.” “No it’s not.” “Yes it is.” I lapped them on the Brandy Pad this Saturday. Da-v-Og. 65-v-40. You just knew they’d been at this for years. Westerly?! Commercial explosives couldn’t have blown you off Bearnagh more effectively. It dropped me into rocks twice, to language unheard of outside of Marseille. Bearnagh is arguably the matriarch of the Mourne Mountains - more dramatic in craggy outline than the other big girls and dodgy enough in the best conditions, let alone this relentless, swirling, mischievous maelstrom. This is because the main routes in the other Mournes 700ms+ tops avoid danger: the track off the Meelmore col positively encourages it, kissing the crags on Bearnagh Slabs and testing it from evaporating footholds in powder-soft granite. Stir in the white stuff in drifts of a foot deep and you have an irresistible cocktail of exposure, danger and bravado. Can I commend Bearnagh: black, sunless and bad in winter? Probably not, but come at her from Meelmore and that experience will so mesmerise you as to dull the pain until you emerge on to her lush Eastern slopes. Meelmore is magical in winter. Is it the scramble over dagger-sharp rocks and mutant icicles? Is it the vistas across the whole range and farther? Is it the sun-soaked summit – white witch to Bearnagh’s black? Perhaps it is the lone, deep canine footprints seen above the Poluphuca - bigger than a fox, bigger than a dog, some say bigger than a wolf. Even he can’t resist a run up Meelmore on a day like this. A loop off Commedagh to pick up the Trassey track, lasso-ed Da and Og again - “It wasn’t that gully.” “Yes it was.” “No it wasn’t.” “Yes it was.” Saturday - v.windy day.
