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.

You fall down a manhole: a bad day. You awake to a broken heart: another bad day. Your children are eaten by alligators: also a bad day. So when polemicists assert that there are no bad days it is clear they have never drawn their own blood. Slieve Bearnagh, Diva of the Mourne Mountains is flame to the moth that was, at least last Saturday, a mountain dragnet performed by squillions of be-woggled pubescents. Led by fat sweaty men and bounding healthy women, they poured into every one of Bearnagh's mountain tracks like the Blackwater up rabbit holes. A bad day is also one that starts with the zip coming off your jacket, your boots left at home and the torpor of a damp Ulster morning; the kind with the trick rain that doesnt fall but soaks you to your soul. Bearnagh breaks the rolling Mournes skyline with 2 ragged tors; and the silence of the Trassey valley with a siren call to action. Her northern flank is cracked and torn by a thousand feet over more gravel than granite; her southern is worse and with little stupidity you can ski down it to your demise. Out of every corner they came like Gengis shagging Khan. And so every route-off-route had to be devised, to avoid being deafened, flattened and trodden on. So deny yourself Trassey or the Pad and approach her from Corragh; juke round the Poluphuca to the col twixt More and herself; shin up the first 5 mins right of the wall and slabs and then go left of them and hold that left unto the summit and down. The sky became sun, the din became song and the damp became diamonds. OK, so bad days ..? Toggly go boggly go woggly. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/83/comment/4216/
