A rugged hill that forms part of the volcanic ring encircling Slieve Gullion, with some very rewarding scrambles and views considering it's humble size. The remains of a British army base is definitely worth a look, while the aspect around the Ring of Gullion is stunning. For best results approach from NE groove as established SE route is a bit timid and not as dramatic. Look out for mountain goats, buzzards and ravens, and the 17th century tower on an adjacent hill to the north. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/950/comment/3961/

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. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/950/comment/4205/

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! Linkback: 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. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/950/comment/4336/
