Bleck Cra on Rocky Mountain, 2006
by Bleck Cra  19 Apr 2006
If you’re a soldier at the top of Slieve Donard you can be hit by lightning and killed, apparently. Am I interested in the story? Is Socrates’ drowning student interested in air? The winter in the Mournes, having failed to make any impression on the year - at all, resorted to a fit of pique, a couple of Saturdays ago when M. Nature told it, it was Spring’s turn. Kicking and screaming, it blitzkreiged the gentle Mournes with salvos of ice needles and despatched the aforesaid squaddie to forever sentry duty. Rocky Mountain should not be confused with Rocky Mountain or in fact with Rocky Mountain. First, up off the Annalong; second at the White Water; and third ‘round about Rostrevor; and given it’s a great get-out to coming up with an actual name for a hill, probably thousands more between here and the Dakotas. The first proves a source of bewilderment to me. Barely a kink on the contours, attack it from the Annalong and be you ingénu enough to do this in the mirk, it will drain every ounce of resolve in you, out. You will bash heather, scramble, tumble, perhaps crumble. A broken leg, a broken head and a broken spirit await. Why? Because the most natural route off/on her, has none. Traverse ‘til the cows come home; even do a kind of corkscrew thing. But can you go straight up? Probably, but take a bivvy bag just in case. From Donard and pre-Donard, unnoticeable; from the Annalong - completely memorable. The buckshot hail would have rattled Ned Kelly; it was very dodgy weather. He was leading a party. With the hood cranked fully in and eyes welded shut from the assault, he announced that it was “not a bad day between the showers”. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/406/comment/2283/
