Approached from Cock Mountain as part of our Spelga Dam circuit. The low ground between Pigeon Rock and Cock is wet and marshy although the covering of bog cotton added a certain picturesque quality to the area. As we laboured up Pigeon Rock, it became apparent that it was much less a rock, more a hellish giant lump of marshy, sticky mud that brought to mind a similarly hellish jaunt up Arderin in Offaly. We were glad to reach the broad top and guessed that the cairn that appeared to be moulded out of a corner of Batt's Wall marked the summit. The eastern side of the wall provided perfect shelter for a bit of breakfast and was obviously a popular dining area given the small scattering of rubbish strewn at the base (2nd summit in a row we'd had to do a clean up... who are these people?). From here, we had a superb view across to our next summit and our highest peak of the day Slieve Muck and as we ate, we wondered who this Batt fella was and how he must have felt rather bad when comparing his effort to the behemoth that is the Mourne Wall.
