HikingGreat!

Beautiful trail... not too hard, bit windy at the top but worth it. Better to go in the week when it’s less busy

Good trail, path well kept, last 200m were tight going but it’s good to get to the top.

It was a great hike some parts of the track where very icey but going slow and around them helped a lot worth it for the views at the top!

very slippy but going off track helped with more grip in the snow but that was to be expected. Crampons be worthwhile if doing it again. Our friend Jay who checked weather and timings planned it perfectly and we got there for an amazingly clear, beautiful sunrise

Absolute disgrace the amount of rubbish left around the summit. People should be ashamed of themselves.

WalkingGreat!

Straight forward enough trail. Forest on the way up is beautiful alongside the waterfall. Stone path from the forest onward right to the top which breaks down against some parts of the wall but nothing impassable. Bring a warm coat as winds can be chilly.

Good moderate hike, with a mixture of forest, river and fell views. Relatively easy first 3 quarters with a decent stony path, final quarter following the Mourne Wall fairly steep and somewhat eroded but still plenty of good footholds. Cairns and views - for many miles - from the summit are worth the last push and the stile makes a good photo opportunity. Bit slippery coming down - poles recommended if you’re at all unsteady. Took just over 3 hours - although I was running at stages.

Great hike but tough at the last section from the wall. Gorgeous clear day meant the views for the summit were amazing.
