We headed for Cock Mountain from the gap between Pigeon Rock Mountain and Slievemoughanmore and decided to take a direct heading as light was fading. Surprisingly the ground was reasonably ok allowing for the weather conditions. Cloud was low at approx. 400 metres and this photo shows Hen Mountain in the distance and the lower slopes of Cock Mountain in front of it to the right.

A McVeigh Spelga
by CaptainVertigo  18 Nov 2014
There are many Spelga Circuits. Gerry McVeigh's MOURNE MOUNTAINS - HIGH CIRCUIT OF SPELGA will certainly give you the "feel" of the general area in autumn. It is , I am afraid, a little bleak. Heathcliff would be more than at home here. If ever a height "wuthered" it was one of these lakesiders. Gerry's film is restful, wistful even. I know that he took in Cock Mountain and Slieve Muck but he is uncharacteristically quiet about the rest of the route. When I did it about ten years ago, we began with Slievenamiskan, went onto to Cock Mountain dragged ourselves in mist across a marsh as far as Pigeon Rock and then up by Batt's Wall finally ascending Slieve Muck, before heading back to the start. Gerry's lovely work allows me to see, now, what I missed in the mist. Be sure to watch this before you set off.
