Slieve Beg offers some the best climbing in the Mournes, but suffers from lack of traffic as many are deterred by the extra half-hour's walk from Cove. Many excellent single and multi pitch routes, particularly in the VS-E3 range..
Allow 1.5 hours walk in either:
1) along the Annalong Valley
2) from Newcastle over the Slieve Donard/Slieve Commedagh col.
|better walking in from donard park|
