Started off from Bloody Bridge and cut off the track before I reached Carr's face. A heavy frost meant that the going was somewhat easier - ground looked like it could be very boggy otherwise. Also aided by the fact that the heather on the lower slopes is still recovering after a fire on the slopes of Chimney Rock back in September/October. Great views along the coast are opened up as elevation is gained. The summit of CR also provides a great place to view the Higher Mournes from Donard around to Binnian. In wetter weather, a better approach would probably to go up closer to the wall at the bog of Donard as there is a trail from there. From Chimney Rock, I headed for Cove Mountain via the Brandy Pad.
