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.

After many summer climbs of lamagan, it was decided to tackle a winter ascent. After slipping up the road even on the way to the car park we dawned our wet gear as the mist rolled in and the sky turned dark. Walking up the path along annolong wood it was clear to see winter had taken its toll, what once was a track during the summer was now a full scale flowing river. Wading on we hit the bottom of lamagan and began our ascent which quickly became a climb in two feet of snow. The visibility was practically zero but the adrenalin thrill of the snow made it worth while. The summit was reached but there would be no lunch stop today as the blizzard blinded the eyes and all extremities were frozen. We descended towards Ben Crom and walked along silent valley back towards the car. A cold but enjoyable day. Roll on next week. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/106/comment/2619/
