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.

mini three peak challenge
by drdaire  6 Jan 2011
Having lived in the area all my life, I have a great fondness for Sliabh Gullion and its surrounding mountains. Last summer on a fine day I decided to climb three mountains (Cro Sliabh, Gullion and Tievecrum). I started with Crosliabh (and Sliabh Brac, as part of it is known). I walked as far as Carrive (to the south of the mountain) and at the highest point on the Shean road (Back road from Forkhill to Silverbridge), entered a field at the gate (there are a number of new houses here). Walked through some of these farmed fields and you eventually come to a very rough tractor path. Follow the path to the wooden sty and cross it. There is a bit of a gully between the rocky outcrop to your left and the heathery mountain to your right, and you follow this up to the old army mast. Walked from here to the true summit (which is relatively easy, with a little bit of scrambling near the summit). I then started my descent on the northern side of the mountain. There is no path here and the heather and bracken is fairly over-grown, but it is a lovely descent from here to Jacksons Tower and lake (just off the Forkhill to Mullaghbawn road). From here I walked through farmland (all fairly easy, with one crossing of the Forkhill river required) to the foot of Sliabh Gullion. I climbed from the south of the mountain and basically went straight up (not following any path). Once again the mountain is fairly easy to climb. I descended towards the Three steps pub (in Drumintee). I followed the road from Drumintee to Forkhill and started my ascent of Tievecrum from the Northwest of the mountain. This mountain is by far the trickiest (totally overgrown, a lot of fallen trees and extremely wet in places). Best bet is to ascend as high as possible through the forest. At more or less the highest point in the forest, there is an old stone wall, from which an extremely rough path can be taken to the summit. I descended through the forest and followed the forest track easterly. From here farmland borders the forest, and it is fairly easy to walk through here and on to the Carrickasticken road. I decided I’d finish the walk with a trip to Urnai (which isn’t far from the road). There is a path (signposted) which takes you off the main road, through farmland, over a small metal bridge and then on to Urnai Graveyard (well worth a visit). From here, I walked along the river (in a northerly direction) where there is an overgrown path (used to be the main road from Dundalk to Armagh in olden times) all the way to forkhill.
