This is the higher of two peaks in the Mourne Mountains called Slievenaglogh, the other being situated further south, facing Slieve Binnian across the Silent Valley. This peak is east of Hare's Gap. On the western flanks is a huge granite boulder with a scooped-out face so that it resembles a giant's seat (David Kirk, 'The Mountains of Mourne - A Celebration of a Place Apart', p. 121).   Slievenaglogh is the 330th highest place in Ireland.

Mournes Daytrip: Part IV (19/09/22)
by dino  3 Oct 2022
Following the Wall once again from Slievenaglogh East Top there was a nice climb up to the top of Slievenaglogh itself. Once again the summit is marked with a large cairn but the top itself is pretty flat with loads of large areas of exposed rock. Heading past the summit slightly I found one of these with just enough shelter to set up my gas stove to make tea. Lunch was had overlooking Hare’s Gap and Ben Crom Reservoir with a fine view of the craggy top of Slieve Bearnagh across the way. It would have been hard to picture a better lunch spot that day and despite the sharp edge to the light breeze that had picked up I had to force myself away and scramble down to Hare’s Gap to continue the day.
