This peak offers a fine view north to Slieve Gullion and its satellites, and south to County Louth, but access is difficult due to dense undergrowth. A group of stones beside the triangulation pillar on the summit may be the Bohil Breaga of Tiffcrum (i.e. the false lad or shepherd) referred to by Michael J. Murphy in his book 'Mountain Year' (p. 40).   Tievecrom is the 1245th highest place in Ireland.

Tievecrom

Arrived at the gates (J025146 E) mentioned by Wicklore, by following the minor roads and the Slieve Gullion Way from Croslieve, well prepared for my forth coming battle with Tievecroms infamous summit slopes.

Followed the track to the second set of locked gates, then to the forestry track turning left along this to Wicklores grid ref at J022151 B. This spot is easy to recognise, as the forest boundary breaks left, creating a corner in the field, on your left & there is a bank running up hill on your right, pay attention as this is the key.

Now follow this bank, on your right up hill, it turns into a wall and after a short distance it turns right creating a corner. From this corner strike up hill, first through short patches of brambles but more importantly good stretches of grassy hillside and wait for it, a faint path! As you reach the forests end, you will pass round a tree only being held up by its neighbouring trees, as its trunk has been severed. Try not to be around it on a windy day, past this a very faint path (other MVrs wanderings?) winds round the last of the trees and you arrive in area of dead bracken below the small out crop mentioned in previous postings. Here a small trench through the bracken has been created by those hardy souls seeking the summit, it makes straight for the rock band, where it ascends a gap in rock. This feels a bit insecure, due no doubt to the bracken, heather, on deer grass being attached to a light coating of soil on rock, now some more dead bracken, wind bush with some heather and a rock slab is negotiated before arriving at the summit. Return was by the same way, taking care through gap in the rock band (kick those heels in).

Harry Goodman called it right about this hill, as I had found on a couple of Donegal hills the week previous, climb now before the new plant growth starts for spring / summer and it will only be a mild inconvenience, leave till the summer and the route will be choked by brambles, bracken and other soul destroying thorny under growth. The choice is yours! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/989/comment/4656/
