Number 300

Did this summit today as part of a 4 summit bag on the Ring of Gullion, and in so doing crossed the 300 summit mark and finished all the tops in Cooley/Gullion.
Used the route as per other users here, Park at double-gate, go through cattle pen and up through farmland to the stile and on to the top.
It was a fabulous day with views over Armagh and surrounding counties from Carrigtuke, Camlough, Croslieve and Tievecrom, all very different characters, and all possible in an easy day driving between them, thanks to millsd1 for his navigation and prepared notes getting us faultlessly to all!

This is the view from the top of Croslieve looking SE over Tievecrom to the Cooley Mountains beyond. When I climbed Croslieve yesterday I had intended to also climb Tievecrom but ran short of time. With hindsight having read pdtempan's comments on Tievecrom I am very glad I left it to another day. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/950/comment/4205/

Croslieve

What a gem of a little hill, the views are excellent and with its rocky tops giving it an appearance of a greater height than it actually is & with a short ascent into the bargain as well, what more could you want? I followed Harry's route of ascent, passing the noisy dogs on the ascent and again on the descent, when they were more docile, getting used to MV'rs passing by perhaps!

I then followed the minor roads back to Forkill and then the Slieve Gullion Way all the way to the locked gates below Tievecrom, to do battle with its now legendary, nay, infamous bramble and fallen tree chocked slopes! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/950/comment/4655/

Reading various helpful comments on Croslieve ish . stimulated by banusca's recent self-effacing offering, reminds me that some balmy summer day a bottle of wine, egg sandwiches, a straw hat and I must clatter up into these very pretty little hills which along with owning an XK120, writing a prize-winning play and singing live with The Who I shall do one day definitely. The issues, it appears, include staring into someones kitchen, fending off vast savage dogs and looking suspicious. I would point out that in these parts, none of these things are unusual. A map of the specific area is good; one of Ireland is even better. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/950/comment/4336/

You can start your walk to the summit at a forest trail which begins at H994171 A (the narrow road on the west side of Croslieve). There is room for two or three cars here. Follow the trail for approximately 100 meters until you have the option of either going left or right: GO RIGHT! You will come to a small pilgrimage area, with a cross, which you will see on your right. The trail becomes less obvious after this as you will start walking to your left up through the forest towards the gap between Slievebrack and Croslieve . If done correctly you will come to a style which will bring you out of the forest and into the gap. From here just make your own way up to the top. This route seems to be the most common way up to the summit and really is simple enough to follow; I would recommend it! If you're feeling really energetic you could also walk to the summit of Slievebrack , but the terrain is very deep and difficult to walk across; maybe not a good idea!
