Slieve Beg © Plinton

Crag features

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..

Approach notes

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
