Will I? Won't I?............. Standing below the Devils Coachroad - Contemplating................................
Before swiftly moving along to rejoin the Brandy Pad and get back to the car at Meelmore Lodge. Ah well! Nice Idea though! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/297/comment/1419/

Like many of the Mournes, Slieve Beg when viewed from adjacent mountains does not look nearly as impressive as when viewed from the valley floor as in this photo. Photo was taken at 343267 A on 20/03/05. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/297/comment/1604/

There is good rock-climbing to be had on the granite cliffs on either side of this gash. Routes include Satan's Staircase, Necromancer, Exorcised and Loosifer. The Devil's Alternative was first climbed by Dawson Stelfox, the first Irishman to conquer Everest. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/297/comment/2214/

Approached from Cove Mountain, Slieve Beg is a quick down-and-up. Even at the summit you feel almost cosy, with the taller peaks of Cove Mountain, Slieve Commedagh, and Slieve Donard towering over you. The photo shows the area around the highest point of Slieve Beg (with Slieve Bearnagh's tors in the background), not the more photogenic outcrop shown in tsunami's picture. I didn't fancy tackling The Devil's Coachroad with a twisted knee, so descent was via the col between Cove and Slieve Beg, following the stream down to the track which leads back to Carrick Little.

Stared down the Devil's Coachroad and decided he can have it
by PinkyFloyd  16 Sep 2018
I know that people scramble up the Devil's Coachroad though the mechanics of actually getting up the top part elude me. Braver men than I! Standing on top of Beg, looking down the massive gulley is sure to make your heart beat a little faster. Great views of the gulley are afforded on either side of it, though care and common sense are required. Getting to Beg can be hard (Lamagan > Cove > Beg) or easy (Trassey > Hares Gap > Brandy Pad). Totally worth it however you get there. Wonderful views and that gulley is a heart stopper. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/297/comment/20068/
