Some steep ascent indeed !!
by David-Guenot  11 Jun 2016
The ascent from Mam Ean is pretty steep indeed, particularly at the beginning. This pic was taken NE of Binn Mhor W top ans shows Binn Choanaigh's steep SE slopes and the lovely wee heart-shaped lougheen near Mam Ean. The Western Way is also clearly visible and provides an easy approach. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/225/comment/18577/
