Bedrock type: Granite granophyre, (Mourne Mountains granite)

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.

Up-and-down on Slievelamagan, 2009
by Up-and-down  3 Aug 2009
Fingal asks "what is happening and on what scale?" with respect to something he observed on Slievelamagan, but without more information what can one say? Was this "2X3 feet" excavation in solid rock, or soil? What was the "equipment" found nearby? Was it freshly done, or old and weathered? Where exactly is the spot? Give us a clue!! "2X3" feet hardly seems "very extensive", and when compared to the numerous abandoned (and two still working) quarries in the Mournes seems trivial.
