darrenf on Slieve Loughshannagh, 2010
by darrenf  8 Jan 2010
From Carn to Slieve Loughshannagh navigation is a very straight forward affair. The mourne wall links both peaks and also continues onto Slieve Meelbeg and provides alot of comfort navigationally, particularly in poor conditions. Believe it or not we meet three snowboarders and one cross country skier (possible other MVers??) while scaling the gentle slopes of Loughshannagh. Incidentally the snow was so deep that we had to use the mourne wall in places as a 'staircase' along the ascent. That said conditions on the day were near perfect with crisp blue skies and even some bright sunshine. Views across the mourne range were spectacular. The photo shows a frozen lough shannagh in the foreground with views of the slient valley peeping through behind. Refer to Slieve Meelbeg for the rest of the route.
