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 Mournes Panorama
by muzag  8 Apr 2012
Last Sunday I met up with a friend's group to do Slieve Bearnagh. The sun was shining and I was up and out early. Too early as it happened, so rather than wait in a car park I headed up above the Spellack slabs from where I could look down on the Trassey Valley (http://db.tt/g0Fd44oW) and see my group as they emerged from the Clonachullion Woods. We met up at the start of the climb to Hares' Gap and from there up to the North Tor for lunch and the Summit Tor for a spot of clambering.

Clouds had obscured the sun which, in a way, was a good thing as it enabled me to take this panorama shot. It's a series 15 photos, stitched together using Hugin (http://hugin.sourceforge.net/). A larger version is available here http://db.tt/xMfQ7E2K.

From Bearnagh we dropped down to the Pollaphuca pass, veering off with a bit of south on the way down to miss the erosion by the wall. From there up to Slieve Meelmore (my first visit to the 'third tower') and then back to where I had been waiting before at Spellack and so to the sheepfold.
