tsunami on Clermont Carn, 2005

They say that every picture tells a story. So we could be here for some time listening to this one! I've commented before on the problems on summits which are providing telecomunications access (see Slieve Croob). It's a terrible shame that past and present cannot co-exist in harmony. I felt compelled to take this photo showing the vandalism on Clermont Cairn - a direct result of the RTE monstrosity in the background. I didn't have a wide enough lense to capture the more recent transmitter slightly to the left. This trig point will unfortunately, probably never be repaired as they are yesterdays technology. On a more positive note, as you can see from the other photos on this page, Black Mountain is a wonderful view point. On clear days it is easy to see the Twelve Bens from the top of the cairn! An excellent days walk is to sart from Davies' pub on the Omeath road from Newry, and head uphill and west for the Flagstaff viewpoint, the view here is postcard perfect! Follow the road on round to Clontygora Court Grave and take the track uphill towards the summit of Anglesey Mountain (422m J105179 B). You're now in the perfect spot for a very enjoyable ridge walk over trhe seven peaks - Anglesey (422), Clermont (448), Black Mountain (508), Carrabane (475), The Foxes Rock (404), The Ravens Rock (457), The Eagles Rock (528) and Slieve Foye (579). End your journey in Carlingford, or if you're up to it continue along the Tain way back to Omeath. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/434/comment/1742/
