tsunami on Slieve Corragh, 2004

Not a particularly inspiring climb on its own. Went up today from the Trassey Track and following the wall from Hares Gap took in Slievenaglogh, Slieve Corragh en route to Slieve Commedagh before returning to Hares Gap via the Brandy Pad. It does however give an opportunity for great views along the Ben Crom Reservoir and towards Bearnagh and Doan. Linkback:

A friendship blossoms

Not a mountain I hear you say? It may be nothing more than a bump on the way from Hare's gap up to Commedagh but to me, Slieve Corragh is nothing short of a hero. I had met them all during a busy morning and afternoon and they had all said hello. A cheery Binnian greeted me first before I ventured upon Moolieve and Slievenaglogh. Muck had been in great form (it rarely is) as had Carn, Loughshannagh, Meelbeg and Meelmore who I met quickly afterwards. By the time I reached the summit of Bearnagh, my legs were screaming for a rest and by the time I had descended to Hare's gap, I was walking round in circles wishing for someone to loan me their legs for even a few minutes. That didn't happen and most people kept their distance, perhaps wary of the bedraggled-looking stranger now walking like Basil Fawlty.
The other Slievenaglogh didn't seem to notice me struggling up those steps nor cared when I stopped briefly due to cramp on it's summit.
No, not one of them had offered me a place to rest my weary legs until I ventured upon poor old Corragh, the one that no-one really cares for and who few bother even to visit. I wouldn't have blamed Corragh if it had ignored me, arriving as I did mumbling something about 'only 2 more left', wondering how the hell you can get hailstones in early May and looking very much like an unwanted extra out of some low-budget 1950's war film. However, Corragh welcomed me in, gave me a place to sit, some water to drink and in a few brief minutes had a stern chat with me to assure me that the Donard day-trippers wouldn't notice nor be bothered about my now regular leg spams and funny walk and that I would indeed make it back to Carrick Little to complete the Mourne Wall Walk. And so it proved.

In such times does friendship blossom. The next time I'm passing by that way, I'll be sure to drop in on Corragh to enjoy perhaps the best seat in the Mournes along with some of the best views. I suggest you do the same! Linkback:

Slieve Corragh as others have said is a mountain en route to and from other places but on linear walks the same could be said of many mountains. In its favour it is centrally located and opens up interesting aspects to other Mourne mountains. Coming from Slievenaglogh as shown in this photo it certainly looks like a mountain! Linkback:

The clear blue waters of Ben Crom reservoir provide an attractive foreground to Slieve Corragh at the head of the valley. Linkback:

It could be said that Slieve Corragh is well placed for a view of Ben Crom Reservoir, even if very little else was visible, judging from this photo. Linkback:

Although not as distinct a summit as many in the Mournes, I certainly found it more interesting than some of the round featureless mounds one would find in Wicklow, for example. The rocks on top did provide welcome shelter from a howling, icy gale. Did as part of a Corragh-Commedagh-Beg route (see S Commedagh comment) Linkback:
