A day of blazing sunshine. Starting and finishing at Carrick Little car park, up the Annalong Valley to just past Slieve Beg, cutting back to the foot of the Devils Coachroad. Up the Coachroad (see comment under Slieve Beg) to the summit, then on over Cove Mountain and Slievelamagan before the final long pull up Slieve Binnian (here the party split with some gritting their teeth and biting their tongues along the MHT "made" path and others taking the old path). From Binnian summit the Mourne Wall was followed back down to the Annalong track and the return to the start. "It took you all day to do that?" - Mary
