The Most Direct Route
by Trailtrekker  3 May 2013
Like Cratlieve, the other spur off Slieve Croob, this peak seems to only be walked by those who have taken in it's bigger neighbour first. And the numbers suggest that only about a quarter of MVers do this. For those who just want to take in this summit, for whatever reason, here it is. There is a wooden gate at J3190543624 B just east of a small river. Enter the field and follow farmers track parallel to the river until you reach another gate at J3190243897 C. Go through the gate, there is a fence to your right which you can follow to the summit.

As you can see from the attached photo I walked this hill during the recent snow. My approach was from Slieve Croob and used the above route as the most direct route of getting off the open mountainside and on to a road (as I was in a rush to get back to Castlewellan in time to see the Grand National!). Not the conditions to really judge it, but I would wager that the terrain under foot is better from this approach than the boggy saddle between Slieve Croob. So if you have already done Croob and have decided to return to the area to also tick this and Cratlieve off your list I would highly recommend this route.

On an aside, isn't it amazing how a fall of snow can make what would not be the most exciting of hill walks into a greater adventure. On both Cratlieve and the small Grungadoo I came across five feet frozen drifts that allowed me to walk over the gates. Definitely a lot of fun to be had in the snow. The only regret I had was that I hadn't brought a small sledge for the descent, particularly on my visit to Doan last weekend! I do love the Mournes and the recent snow has only made me love them more. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/631/comment/14972/
