So named, according to Harris (author of The Antient and Present State of the County of Down), because it has to be climbed in a crawling position. The southern slopes are, indeed, relentlessly steep. An alternative name, Sliabh Snámháin, has the same meaning. Below Lamagan Slabs is a spot called Percy Bysshe, which suggests a connection with the poet Shelley.   Slievelamagan is the 109th highest place in Ireland.

Great viewpoint

A quite fantastic location for viewing the Higher Mournes. The walk across the inner spine of Beg, Cove and onto Lamagan is an interesting and recommended one. Found the approach from this side easier than the tough pull up from the Binnian/Lamagan Col Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/106/comment/15194/
