Longitude: -6.436558, Latitude: 54.077218 , Easting: 302386, Northing: 315356 Prominence: 172m,   Isolation: 1.6km,   Has trig pillar

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.

This and neighbouring Croslieve are two hills I'd been relishing for a while, the Ring of Gullion holding a special place in my heart (despite being a Tyrone man), and encouraged by Harry's tip that winter is the best time to tackle this stubborn hill. I reached Forkhill by travelling south through Markethill and Whitecross, a route that provides a stunning aspect as you enter the ring dyke, with the higher peaks clearly topped with snow. Like previous posters I parked near Forkhill House - theres good parking along a verge at 028143 A, then walked some distance back along the road to the double gate and path leading to the forest track described by Wicklore. I followed the track west as it rose and fell, until it ascends quite steeply up the northwest slopes as can be seen on Map 29. Once it began to descend again I could see that the track left the forest a little ahead. Before reaching this point I decided just to go for it and enter and scale the forest by the path of least resistance: the ground here was less steep than before where there was generally a bank to negotiate before getting onto the hill proper. I entered the forest therefore about 023157 B. The going wasn't too bad at first but fallen trees blocked progress and then there were the almost impenetrable brambles! I lost count of the number of thorns I plucked from my hands (and legs!) and still have the scars to prove it. As Pdtempan says a machete would be a bonus but a thick branch helped somewhat. Also, because visibility through the trees is so poor I half feared ending up on some rival, false summit. I was relieved to finally exit the trees and took a well deserved rest. Here the view opened up to include Gullion, with Camlough Mtn beyond. Now the waist high heather guarding the final ascent was a doddle (looked like someone else had approached this way recently). I took another breather on the handy stone chair beside the trig point, enjoying the views which now took in Croslieve, the snow capped Cooleys, the plains of north Louth, Dundalk and its bay. I didn't hang around and picked out a clearing to the south with the remains of a stone wall, probably that mentioned by others. I aimed for this, carefully avoiding some stony sections, icy with the recent weather. On reaching the wall it was surrounded by more brambles and here seemed to rise again before descending, so I decided to attempt my way down via the most direct route. Again progress was soon hampered by more brambles and fallen trees. I was also careful to check for hidden drops. As with the summit, the welcome sight of the forest track came upon me quite suddenly. As others have said, this low hill poses quite a challenge but it was worth it for the lovely views and the satisfaction of bagging a peak that still has no established path to the top: looking back, I was amazed I had conquered this jungle-like hill! Again, it's one that's probably best tackled during the winter. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/989/comment/4322/
