Bleck Cra on Slieve Binnian North Tor, 2005
by Bleck Cra  10 Jan 2005
Hello Tsunami - although I've done the sevens a couple times just for my own peace of mind, I've never participated in the event proper. I have however seen it in “full” flow twice. On both occasions you could barely tell there were more people on the hill and these were only distinguishable from the rest of us by their drawn faces. I know where you’re coming from reference and inference damage, but I lean towards the view that there is a lot of hill out there and unless the world, its wife, 4 kids and a dog do a dragnet for a century or two over the entire surface, very little damage is done; after all, relatively speaking, man’s mark on the Mournes is akin to a grain of sand on a beach. Also if I might try to further put your mind at ease - anyone taking on the sevens is a fairly serious party and will not be leaving bottles of Buckie behind. Why not give it a go yourself first. Could I suggest a route? Carrick Little and main Annalong Track up to the foot of Commedagh; up Donard and back off on to Commedagh; along the ridge to Hares Gap and round the back to Meelmore, Meelbeg, down and on to Bearnagh; to the Brandy Pad and over Beg, Cove, Lamagan and lastly Binnian; and back into Carrick Little. It’s a tough old ask. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/156/comment/1416/
