Great views of Silent Valley and Ben Crom reservoirs, but most approaches are quite boggy. The sound of the wind howling up through the gullies is second only to the noise that Hen Mt makes when it's a bit breezy. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/404/comment/306/

Avoid the boggy approaches by coming around the back of Doan, then down to the Ben Crom river and up towards the summit on the other side.
One of my favourite walks in the Mournes - the views are fantastic. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/404/comment/675/
