Stared down the Devil's Coachroad and decided he can have it

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/

My wife and I Climbed up Slieve Beg for the first time Sunday 25/03/07. Used the secure carpark at Meelmore Lodge walked around the base of Meelmore then across to the Trassey Track and onwards to the Hares Gap. Following the Brandy Pad around towards the shoulder between Commedagh and Beg and then took a short walk to the summit. When I got to the summit of Beg we stopped for a cup of tea and a bite to eat. The view from the summit of this small mountain makes it worth climbing, especially back towards Bearnagh and with a goord perspective of Donard and Commedagh. After lunch we had a close encounter with the Devils Coach road just looking down towards the valley and the sheer steepness of the scree slope is enough to raise the pulse . We contuined our walk across th the summit of Cove the view here are even better taking in LAMAGAM,THE BINNIANS ,BEN CROM,MEELBEG & MEELMORE to name a few time was running short so we retraced our steps back the way we came to Meelmore Lodge an enjoyable walk on a mild sunny day.

Well worth a visit
by paulocon  10 Jan 2011
Beg is a handy wee dander from the Brandy Pad. For me, it was a stop off point before heading up the punishing incline for Cove. First time seeing the very impressive coachroad abd I have to say I felt uneasy just looking down into it - fair play to all those who have scrambled up it. Well worth a visit.

A similar view to Ricky K's showing the severity of the scree slope forming the Coachroad. Bearnagh cuts an imposing figure in the background, yet somehow seems incredibly inviting to all who view her. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/297/comment/1332/
