Bedrock type: Granite granophyre, (Mourne Mountains granite)

One of the most recognisible peaks of Mourne and perhaps the only one that necessitates removing hands from pockets. Slieve Bernagh gets its name from the two rocky granite tors which crown the summit and the gap or saddle betweeen them.   Slieve Bearnagh is the 85th highest place in Ireland.

This photo taken from Slieve Meelmore shows the Mourne wall and the big ascent of Slieve Bearnagh waiting on the other side. Heading up Bearnagh the route is to keep well right of the wall in the early stages because of the steep gradient. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/83/comment/2007/

Started from Bloody Bridge. Up the Brandy pad to the wall and then onto Donard. This image was taken coming down off Comedagh, after being lashed by ice particles blown on severe gusts of wind, heading for the Hares Gap via Slieve Corragh and SlieveNaglogh and then back along the Brandy Pad to BloodyBridge. Fantastic day. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/83/comment/4315/

Slieve Bearnagh from Commedagh in the first winter snows. Heres hoping they won't be the last !! There is something special about making the first footprints on virgin snow that keeps you coming back for more. Makes the early start and the extra effort plodding through powder worth it. Later in the day it seems that a lot of folks rang in sick to make the most of the conditions!! The Glen River Track was buzzing about lunchtime although it was treacherously icy in places. Good conditions for the Search and Rescue Dog Association who were training in the area. Hats off in respect. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/83/comment/1335/

Climbed Slieve Bearnagh today, followed the wall on the western side up to the summit. The summit area is fantastic, but not somewhere I'd want to be in high winds! Not a breath of wind today, so clouds of midges replaced the usual, wetter clouds! Great views all around. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/83/comment/1787/

Having tackled the North Tor from Hare's Gap, the route up to the main summit is simplicity itself: just follow the wall. I was fortunate to catch the sun just as it was setting behind the summit tors, as viewed from the North Tor summit. Return to the Trassey Track was achieved by heading west down to the col with Slieve Meelmore. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/83/comment/2130/
