Leaving Carrickrawor (see for previous stage of walk), I took a bearing of 89 degrees, eventually finding a track and crossing a Spot Height, before a long but easy descent to Windy Gap. Taking the obvious track at Windy Gap I made my way up and around, leaving the broad track for a narrower one in order to make for Spot Ht 392. There is a style of sorts just a few metres down this narrow track but someone has completely demolished the fence immediately to its left. It takes some strange kind of mentality to do that I guess. There is a clear route rising into the impressive rocky hillside and it was helpful to find that by sticking to the track I was brought around the back of the Spot Height and contoured around the hill directly to the Foxes Rock summit. There is a small cairn on the rocky summit area. Great views across Carlingford Lough into the Mournes and back towards Warrenpoint & Newry. Light was beginning to fade so I didn’t delay here, heading directly for Ravens Rock. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/808/comment/2900/
