A fine view point for Spelga Dam. .. by group   (Show all for Slievenamiskan (Sliabh Meascáin))
 
Two for the price of one
by hbowman1  10 Apr 2011
I climbed this mountain for the first time recently. I started off at the sand bank road car park, before Leitrim Lodge, walked up the lane opposite car park before coming to a gate. After coming through the gate, I turned left and headed toward Hen mountain. The rocky tors provide a nice frame for a photo of Rocky mountain and also afford good views toward wee Slievemoughan, Slievemoughanmore, Eagle mountain and Shanlieve. Thereafter I crossed pathless terrain toward Cock mountain and Slievenamiskan. The gradient is a bit steep is places but eventually in the middle of the ridge between the two mountains very fine views open up of Spelga Dam and of the mountains from Meelmore to Slieve Muck. Having climbed Slieve Muck, Pigeon Rock, Slievemoughanmore, I think Slievenamiskan is probably the best viewpoint to study the reservoir from given its proximity to the reservoir and views of other mountains. The advantage of taking this route is that it is possible to climb Slievenamiskan and Cock mountain in a very short time span: two for the price of one. Similar to Eagle and Shanlieve. After climbing Cock mountain, I descended toward the valley between Cock mountain and wee Slievemoughan. After lunch I headed up wee Slievemoughan. This was my first time on the mountain. From the summit Spelga Dam is hidden from sight but it is possible to see Butter mountain and Slieveloughshannagh in the distance. Thereafter I joined the path between Hen and Cock on one side and Rocky mountain on the other, heading back toward the car park. The full walk took 2.75 hours. The highlights were the views from Hen toward the western Mournes and the views of Spelga from Slievenamiskan and Cock. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/641/comment/6298/
