Fine views in the NE Mournes
Short Summary created by Trailtrekker, wicklore  8 Mar 2018
Chimney Rock Mountain sits proudly above the Irish Sea in the north-eastern Mournes. Evidence of extensive mining exists along the side of the mountain at places like Carr’s Face, and the route up from the Bloody Bridge follows a mining track for a lot of its length. Five American airmen died when their B26 Marauder crashed on the mountain during training in 1944. Wreckage remains on the hill, as well as a memorial plaque and cross at J362 255 A. Chimney Rock offers amazing views over the Mournes, particularly nearby Donard and across the Annalong Valley to Slieve Beg, Cove Lamagan and Slieve Binnian.

One route up is to follow the Bloody Bridge track starting at J389 270 B. Follow the track for about 4 kms up to the Mourne Wall and turn SE to climb 1.5kms to the summit. Alternatively it can be climbed directly from the Bloody Bridge track by striking out south from the track to tackle the steep northern slopes. Be careful to avoid Carrs Face and other steep areas. Also on this route there is plenty of rocks and mining-related scree in places on the northern slopes to contend with. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/178/comment/4938/
