Picture: Chimney Rock from Bloody Bridge River
 
Bloody Bridge
by dmcdevitt  16 Oct 2011
Agree with Wicklore's summary for Chimney Rock Mountain, Parked at Bloody Bridge, Great Car Park for this walk as it has WC before you start, Headed up the track along Bloody Bridge river, Crossed it the river a new wooden Bridge, walk for another 1km and decided that it would be a good idea to access Chimney Rock via Carr's face, Big mistake, Should of access this mountain from Slievenagarragh ridge, look at the photo enclosed as Carr's face lives up to it name, its a sleep incline with lots of large boulders and scree, took ages getting pass this obstacle and its not for the novice walker, Once at the top, returned back via Mourne wall and Bog of Donard and back down the bloody bridge path, It looks like that this route is used quite a bit to access Slieve Donard as the path has suffered a lot of walker damage recently.
