Climb it because it is there !
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  8 Nov 2011
Unlike the other tops on Slieve Binnian, all of which have rocky summit tors, the North Top is a broad rounded summit covered by grass and heather, with some stoney areas. The only real merit in climbing it is "because it's there" or to tick it off in pursuit of a mv list. Most walkers will cheerfully give it a miss on a walk along the Slieve Binnian ridge. Start at Carrick Little car park J345 219 A and follow the adjacent track N to cross a stone stile. Once over continue along the track as it swings NW past Annalong Wood and then, some way along, the rocky hump of Percy Bysshe and the Blue Lough, both on the right. Continue up and along the track to J321 256 B in the col between Lamigan and Binnian. Turn left and follow the track up a rocky edge. The rough track up soon becomes a stone "staircase" laid down in 2011 up the peaty spur to help preserve the badly eroded mountainside. Continue up to the rocky area of the North Tor around J319 246 C. From here it is a short walk up SE over grass and heather to the broad rounded top. Return by way of ascent. An alternative route is to park in the Silent Valley car park J306 211 D (charge) and take the shuttle bus (charge), or walk, up the side of the Silent Valley Reservoir to Ben Crom Reservoir. Climb up the steps to the dam head and take a rough track going NE up the hillside to the Binnian/Lamigan col J321 256 B. From here go up SE and follow the directions up to the top as described above. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/145/comment/4905/
