I climbed Croslieve and neighbouring Tievecrom on Sat with one of my dogs. Following Harry's advice I tackled the latter first, as it's much trickier despite its lower height. I started at the same set of double gates between two houses as mentioned by others; coming from Forkhill you'll spot a small townland marker stone on the left and the gates are a short distance ahead on the right (I parked a little downhill close to another gate where I wasn't blocking the road, about 003153 D). I must admit when crossing the two sets of gates before reaching open hillside I felt a little uneasy, as I was in full view of the kitchen of one of the houses as mentioned by Pdtempan and the obligatory family dog did its best to draw attention to us! This was early evening too, so I may have looked a bit suspect.

The route to the summit via the comms mast is pretty straightforward: I ended up following a fence off to my left before crossing a stile then keeping to the left of another fence where there's a pretty clear track. I passed the mast compound, ascended a little then down again to an obvious groove heading downhill which you can see from Tievecrom. I crossed this and climbed uphill again to one of two rocky 'bumps' visible in the pic to the right of the mast. Not entirely sure which was higher (from the pic it looks like the left one is higher but standing on it the other seemed higher... map suggests the first?), I covered myself by descending a little then climbing the 2nd bump.

It was getting quite dark and I didn't hang about. The view was similar to Tievecrom, with Gullion prominent NW. The best thing was seeing the lights come on in Dundalk (and the motorway ringing it) and I could follow the lights back up to Forkhill and over to Jonesborough etc. As Harry says this is an interesting hill with varied terrain and it's best to allow yourself time to enjoy it. Unfortunately I misjudged and ended up descending almost in pitch darkness, quite an unsettling experience. Especially with this being quite a stony hill (lately Id been used to the much boggier Sperrins) and the recent ice made things quite treacherous. I had a few falls along the way I must admit, so would urge caution. I toyed with coming down an alternative route, but found the going quite steep off the obvious route and not a good idea at this time of evening, so retraced my steps. In fact once I neared the bottom I had difficulty locating the path back to the road with just my mobile phone light, and half the dogs of south Armagh seemed to be barking at us as I stumbled around for ages trying to find my way! Not my most enjoyable expedition as it turned out but lesson learned.

P.S. when in the area you might want to visit Castle Roche, a short distance to the southwest in Co. Louth. I didnt have time but it looks impressive and once marked the northern boundary of the Pale. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/950/comment/4331/
