Slippy slopes!

I started where the Mourne Way crosses the Spelga Pass road; there isn't really anywhere suitable to park here so it probably wasn't the best idea. There's a handy bridge across the river, and then it's straight up the steep and very slippy northern flanks of Slievenamiskan (careful here, especially if coming down this way). Note that the dam itself is out of bounds, if coming back this way, you must cross downstream of it. My picture is taken looking towards paulocon's vantage point.

There's no trig pillar at the summit, so I took a reading at what I estimated to be the highest point. Even the summit is quite a boggy place, so gaiters are advised! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/641/comment/6150/
