CaptainVertigo on Binn idir an dá Log, 2005
by CaptainVertigo  18 Sep 2005
INTRODUCTION:During childhood trips to Renvyle in the 1960s I observed the Maamturks from the floor of the Inagh valley. They appeared like a row of elite sentries: austere, uniform, forbidding and insurmountable. A linear cascade of rock. I still felt somewhat daunted by them in August 2005, and wondered just how steep they might prove to be. When I stood at Mam Ochoige, the saddle between Cnoc na hUilleann and Binn Idir an Da Log, I was overwhelmed with a sense of deja vu, because, of course, my Jes Boy comrades and I had been there before during our teenage years:there, on the western side of the Turks was the strange green mossy looking world where, so it seemed, the sun never quite shone. PREPARATION: A "must see" site is our own Simon Stewart's magnificent study at http://www.simonstewart.ie/Turks/turk.htm ; also,Harveys Connemara 1:30,000; OS 37;Dillon -Connemara; Joss Lynam -Best Irish Walks; printout of all contributions here re Maamturks;Google Earth flyovers.MY ROUTE:I'll let you figure out where to park yourself. After that its a gradual walk along streams as you aim for Mam Ochoige (L877 537) until you reach the steep grassy slope from the valley floor to the "Mam" itself. As you turn and face Binn Idir an Da Log you will see the mountain above the lake as shown in SILVER'S excellent photo in his April 04 contribution. I ascended by the route on the left. The rise from the lake area is steep and rocky and requires concentration. As the ground flattens out towards the summit plateau tremendous views open in all directions. This mountain, the highest of the Turks, is king of a thrilling landscape. My photo (below) shows the scene from the shoulder of BIaDLog looking back across Mam Ochoige towards cnoc na HUillean.
