Mournes Daytrip: Part II (19/09/22)
by dino  3 Oct 2022
Leaving Commedagh I had my first encounter with the infamous Mourne Wall. Despite reading all about it and having seen loads of photos I was truly amazed by the size, scale and workmanship involved in creating such a huge project. Seeing another group heading in the same direction I decided not to cross the Wall and headed off the shoulder of Commedagh, losing much of my hard earned elevation gain of the morning. Dropping down I had great views into the Pot of Legawherry and I was particularly caught by the strange rock formations on the edge of the ridge.
.
Approaching the summit of Slieve Corragh I soon realised that I was on the wrong side of the wall and peering over I could see the summit cairn approximately 30m away. Abandoning all dignity I managed to clamber up and over the wall, gaining a further appreciation for the scale of it and confirming that the stone is unforgiving on bare skin!
.
After that mini-adventure the small summit cairn was a simple stroll and I headed beyond to get fantastic views and my first sight of Ben Crom Reservoir sitting like a mirror in the valley beyond.
