Steep But Rewarding
by Aidy  23 Apr 2015
I took the already well described route starting at Meelmore Lodge, skirting around the northwest side of Slieve Meelmore, then joining the Trassey Track up to Hare's Gap. I had been enjoying the views on the way up, but reaching the Mourne Wall here, they really opened up into the heart of the range. Turning right, some stone steps took me up a short steep section where, wearing a heavy rucksack, care is needed not to topple backwards! After an all too brief level area, it was just a matter of following the Mourne Wall up the very steep climb to the summit. It was steep enough to make me glad that I wouldn't be descending this way, instead continuing over Bearnagh to the col between it and Slieve Meelmore to take the Trassey Track back out, little realising that the descent of Bearnagh would be probably even more steep. It was all worth it at the summit though with its magnificent tor, and truly amazing views along Slievenaglogh, Slieve Corragh, Slieve Commedagh and Slieve Donard. There was also a great view over to my next stop, Slieve Bearnagh, a short hop away. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/139/comment/17944/
