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.

Lamagan and the mysterious disappearing path.......
by PinkyFloyd  7 Aug 2018
Traipsed up the mighty Lamagan today for the first time from the col between Binnian and Lamagan. Started perfectly on the path which I soon lost. Yes the path looked clear on my map but could I find it after a few hundred metres? Nope! So off I went, tracking North and a little East making my own merry way up the mountain. I kinda enjoyed gawking up and picking my path, I knew to stay well away from the east face so just used a bit of grit and stubbornness and common sense.

I eventually found the path again, I think, it's hard to say, but it led me to the Col. A look at google maps in satellite view shows the path quite clearly, but it's one thing to see it on google maps and another thing entirely to find it at ground level! I enjoyed the hike, yes it was a bit of a slog but it's a majestic looking mountain and it felt great to climb it. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/106/comment/20005/
