A substantial tower has been built on the summit. The spot height is given as 704m on the 1:25,000 map, but this does not square with the contours, which only go up to 680m. Spellack (speilic, ' a splintery rock') is a spur on Slieve Meelmore.   Slieve Meelmore is the 141st highest place in Ireland.

This walk proved to be a good day out for the Northern Ireland Young Walkers Club and was suitable for the range of abilities of the walkers on the day (23/04/06). The photo shows a lunch time break with the perfect view towards Bernagh. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/138/comment/2333/

OonaghG - have a look at my comment "Slieve Binian North Tor 05-01-10", which might help. Or possibly not. Although I'm giving it some thought for this year, I have never participated in the event proper, so there may be some restrictions on routes. Anyway, if you have as much interest in the "authorised" version as have I, you will wing out and give it a go, just for the hell of it. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/138/comment/2406/

Picture: Two Walls on Meelmore

Two walls on the east side of Slieve Meelmore as shown in the photo, seen from Slieve Bearnagh lead the way to the top. I agree with other contributors that the high point according to the eye would appear to be different from that shown on the map. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/138/comment/2514/

Picture: Missing stepping stones
Stepping stones washed away
by Donard850  16 Feb 2013
The valley between Meelmore and Meelbeg is a popular approach from the carpark at the upper end of the Trassey Road. One approach is to take the left side of the valley and cross the stream via stepping stones and climb the steps to the stile. This crossing is also part of the route of the Ulster Way. Recent heavy rains have washed the stepping stones away leaving a deep pool. However, it is still possible to cross with dry feet using a convenient boulder just a little downstream from the steps. The stepping stones washed away were fairly big rocks and their loss is an indication of the power of water in what is normally a little stream.

Great views of the Mournes
by simongray12190  29 Nov 2015
Great weather and great views on the day we went up Meelmore. Heading up the Trassey track we then forked off to the SW towards the col between Meelmore and Bearnagh before heading up along right hand section the wall towards the top of Meelmore. You'll be greeted with a small stone shelter at the summit along with amazing views of the surrounding mountains and countryside. The quickest way back is to jump over the wall at the shelter and head down the NE side of the mountain which gets steep as you get further along so watch out. Once you make it down the steep section then you can head back down the valley before crossing the river and heading back down the trassey track.
