Crag features

The climbing on Bearnagh's tors varies widely from short boulder problems to long pitches on the east face of the Summit Tor. The situation is tremendous, overlooking the higher Mourne peaks and the Ben Crom reservoir.

Approach notes

Follow Trassey Track to Hares Gap and from here follow the Mourne wall to the summit of Slieve Bearnagh (1.5 hours).

Stunning location to climb and loads of quality routes, especially HVS-E2 range, could do with a little more traffic as some of the cracks are a bit grubby.
