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 time: 1.5 hours either -
-along the Brandy Pad from Trassey Valley
- along the Annalong Valley
- from Newcastle over the Slieve Donard/Slieve Commedagh col
