Colin Murphy on Rocky Mountain, 2009
by Colin Murphy  17 Jun 2009
Having parked at Bloody Bridge, (which has the added attraction of clean toilets!) I followed the Bloody Bridge river and ascended Chimney Rock to the south west at a point where you see a large metal pipeline crossing the river. (Sorry no grid refs as I lost my map on the slopes of Rocky Mt!). I descended towards the Mourne Wall and tracked off to the SW towards Rocky, crossing the wall and following it until a point where a narrow ascending track becomes visible directly to the east of the summit. From there it is a relatively easy jaunt to the top. The actual top is a rocky outcrop about 50 metres to the south of the cairn. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/406/comment/3862/
