Super Nat Mountain
by Bunsen7  20 Sep 2020
Cursing the lack of Brown Dots on the OSNI Mournes Map and my own failure to mark the exact location of Slieve Binnian's 4 VLs I was lucky to make the approach in clear weather from Carrick Little and sense that perhaps this slight detour from the wall before tackling the main summit met the criteria.

It was touch and go in all honesty and looking at the figures now I see that this top only barely has a prominence of 15 metres. It certainly feels that way on the approach - minimal effort from the col with the summit proper.

Anyway it's a fine place for a cup of tea and a biscuit for those of us that like to savour the views on clear days (and will use any excuse to postpone the real work that lies ahead).

I was interested by what looked like litter at the "summit" cairn only to find at closer quarters that it is a painted stone bearing the words "Super NAT Mountain".

Although I am generally against any traces or objects on mountains (the laughing Budda on Galtymore being the obvious exception) - I figured this little memento might have meaning to someone.

A quick google tells me the story of a young autistic man from the locality named Nathan Pierson who raised a lot of money for the Mournes Mountain Rescue team and who was instrumental in getting Lidl to offer up a site to the MMRT in Newcastle. This appears to have earned him the moniker of SuperNat. I can only assume he or someone else who appreciates him has put this stone on Slieve Binnian East Top.

As a stranger to these parts it was nice to learn a bit of his story.

Now if only I could find out who the Melon Man of Camenabologue is (at least 10 separate pieces he had left up there months ago, it was like Hansel and Gretel, and then I find another one on Slieve Lamagan). Or Bananaman and the Clementine Kid, I'd have a few choice words for those guys! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/230/comment/20892/
