Ben Crom is situated high at the end of Silent Valley, and boasts some of the best crags in the Mournes. The Main Face offers many fine climbs mainly in the HVS-E3 range while other buttresses lower down give numerous shorter routes. Single and multi pitch (10-90m). One of the most unfairly neglected crags in the Mournes, given it can be reached in just a little over an hour via the Ott Track.
Because the crag is very central in the Mournes, there are several approach options. Probably the most pleasant is via the Ott Track, contouring around Slieve Loughshannagh and then cutting across pathless peaty terrain (better after a dry spell) to pick up a small gravelly path that leads to the summit, and descend from there to the routes. Approx. 1hr 10 minutes.
