ERODE TO RUIN
For a start, Bflat minor is not a note. It is a minging chord, which is certainly serious: so serious it should be a capital offence. Regarding this nonsense at the already annoying Bloody Bridge track, we have two contributions by some uninvited busybody. First, a direction stone which indicates that Slieve Donard is somewhere up here. Just in case you were looking for the Matterhorn. Second, more stones attempting but failing to bung up well-trod tracks to said Slieve Donard. Nobody, and thankfully, is paying any attention to either and is ascending this tiresome track as normal. Grumpily. The subject of mountain erosion should be regarded by all normal, intelligent people with the same suspicion, if not derision, as global warming. It is punted by wellmeaning but deluded zealots who need a busier diary and a more life-threatening environment. I have been on this hobby horse before and do not wish to retrace old steps but perhaps suffice to write (again) that it would take a dragnet of a thousand people a thousand years to put so much as a scratch on these hills and that scratch would pale to nothing against the transformation already effected by us and our passion for designer pullovers and lamb cutlets. So to all of us coming new to the Bloody Bridge track, I should encourage you to go up and down it any way you like and absolutely ignore all instructions. The way things are going in the Mournes, we shall have clippies (a pre 1970s occupation, authenticating bus tickets on board) soon anyway, checking our tickets before we put our boots on. Enjoy while you can. Maclimber, I can’t get more serious than Bflat minor, so this will have to do.

Mangerton North Top: On the way to Mangerton
MountainHunter a day ago.
I started at Point A car park and followed the path. At about 520m (-9.4817 51.9882) the path swings westward, as you walk along the path, the coum for the Devil's Punchbowl comes into view. After...

Slieve Bawn: No longer a drive-up
TommyMc a day ago.
A series of new road barriers means that it's no longer possible to drive further than the car park on the Strokestown side. A very pleasant walk uphill from the car park to the summit and back to...

Knockalongy South-West Top: Beware of the barrier
madfrankie a day ago.
We followed sandman's route to the summit which is probably the best way to explore Knockalongy and its satellites. Gentle gradients but many eroded peat hags. Worth noting that the forest barrier...

Letterbreckaun can be seen from Clare island, around 33km away. It appears between Mweelrea and the high ground towards the Sheefrys.

Caherbarnagh East Top: An unremarkable summit, worth the visit for the views.

The summit is unremarkable though easy to spot as it lies along the fence.

Caherbarnagh East Top: An easy stroll from Caherbarnagh.

There is a gate to cross when coming down from the cairn at the NE end of the main Caherbarnagh ridge (I found it was actually easier to cross the fence just right of the gate). There is a faint t...

Caherbarnagh East Top: A worthwhile addition.

This summit is easily reached from the main Caherbarnagh ridge and seems easy enough to get to from Curracahill as well. If coming from Caherbarnagh, best is to cross the fence just before the col...
