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.

Magnificent Mountain
by Aidy  23 Apr 2015
For the first part of my route from Meelmore Lodge over Slieve Bearnagh North Tor, see my comment on that mountain. It had been a steep pull up from Hare's Gap to the North Tor, and I was glad that it was a short walk, with little descent and ascent to Bearnagh. Even so, on this hot day, I was very tired when I got there, and didn't trust myself to make an attempt to get on top of the tor. Tiredness can lead to mistakes, and that could have serious consequences up there! Instead I contented myself with the breathtaking views which are as good as I've seen. I took a different route down, on to the col between Slieve Bearnagh and Slieve Meelmore, then back out to the Trassey Track. The way down to the col was extremely steep in places and care is needed to avoid a potentially bad tumble. I kept the Mourne Wall on my right on the way down, and peering over it in a few places, it looked dangerously steep on the other side. What a magnificent mountain though, with the views, and its impressive tor into the bargain. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/83/comment/17945/
