Longitude: -6.436542, Latitude: 54.077218 , Easting: 302386, Northing: 315356 Prominence: 172m,   Isolation: 1.6km,   Has trig pillar

Bedrock type: Felsite, (Porphyritic Felsite)

This peak offers a fine view north to Slieve Gullion and its satellites, and south to County Louth, but access is difficult due to dense undergrowth. A group of stones beside the triangulation pillar on the summit may be the Bohil Breaga of Tiffcrum (i.e. the false lad or shepherd) referred to by Michael J. Murphy in his book 'Mountain Year' (p. 40).   Tievecrom is the 1243th highest summit in Ireland.

Carrauntoohil - a doddle. Mweelrea - a piece of cake. Tievecrom? Probably even more difficult than Cairngaver. The first thing to say is that you should not feel obliged to climb this hill at all, unless you're an MV completist. A more enjoyable walk (and certainly much less masochistic one) is to circumnavigate the hill on the good forest track which loops round it at half height. However, if you must, then you must, but you should bear two pieces of advice in mind. 1) Gaiters are an absolute must, and a machete would be an advantage. This peak is surrounded by forestry with a dense undergrowth of bracken hiding brambles and no rides or paths through to the top. You will actually be relieved when you have fought your way through this and the brambles are replaced by waist-high heather! 2) You will save yourself some difficulty by starting from the end of the road at J028148 I near Forkill House. Do not be tempted to take what looks like a shorter route by starting from the Forkill village side, as this will only add to your misery. On the way up we tried an approach from the NE side, which has gentler slopes. As we were beating our way through the brambles and ferns, we were convinced we would emerge on the top and find some good path coming up from another direction, but no! On the way down we made a beeline for the circular forest track by taking advantage of a gap in the forestry on the steep SW slopes. There are slightly fewer brambles here, and to start with there are some slabs of rock which make progress much easier, but these disappear when you reach the forestry. Due to the steepness this is probably much more suitable for descent than ascent. So, in fact, it turned out that we probably had taken the best possible route, incredible as it seemed. The summit itself is pleasant, has a trig point and a 360 degree view of South Armagh and North Louth, with Slieve Gullion featuring prominently. Go enjoy!
