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.

Bleck Cra on Slieve Bearnagh, 2004
by Bleck Cra  18 Nov 2004
Shirley is going to Nepal for Mencap. Shirley is a city girl and until recently-enough, would not have got much higher than her gutties. However Shirley said she was going to Nepal and that’s what she’s going to do, because the Shirl Girl has entered training, like a Snipe to the air. She has bate up and down Cave Hill through the smouldering cars, Buckie bottles and political plasterings and thereon has gone and went and sweeped up from the sea to the Mountains of Mourne. After failed attempts to recruit support from friends, she just took off and put Donard in the bag, then Commedagh; then after, various routes and circuits, of course to include the jitters up Bearnagh, courtesy of her first encounter with mist, isobars and spooks. Last Sat she nailed the said Bearnagh-one and like the rest of us, now she’s done-for. Shirley - it’s all uphill from here on. “Cra,” she said, “you be a track rat - what’s the craic?” “Get thee civilised boots” said I. REICHLES INDEED. “Get a good breathable.” ONE OF THE NEW BERGHAUSES ALSO INDEED. The Cra has an oul pair of Andalos and a black jacket with no name. However, because Shirl has not as yet acquired the monochrome look of track lifers, she is attracting comments from idiots - “Oh you don’t want to go up there love”, “Oh no, that’s too dangerous”, and this, my all-time favourite: “what do you need gaiters for - I’ve been at this six years and I don’t need gaiters.” Good man Sammy - that’s why you have to go through the “A” wash when you get home. I know this is not a chatroom, but if a few of us could give Shirl a few words of encouragement it would be good. Trackback:
