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.

You can see pretty much all of the high Mournes (within the Wall) from the summit.
Best way to get there is up the Slabs(!!), but for the walkers the Binnian/Lamagan col is the shortest route. Can also be done from the Brandy Pad, taking in Slieve Beg and Cove on your way across. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/106/comment/307/
