As Tim Robinson points out, the Ordnance Survey has been incorrectly calling this mountain 'Leckavrea' for a hundred and fifty years. Leckavrea (Ir. Leic Aimhréidh) is the mountain to the E on the other side of Mám Aodha.   Corcóg is the 267th highest summit in Ireland. Corcóg is the most southerly summit and also the second most easterly in the Maamturks area.

First or last of a rewarding route.

I climbed Corcog as the last summit of a fantastic loop, which also included Binn Mhor and Mullach Glas (see track 3238). From the col with Mullach Glas, I kept to the left of the fence and followed it as it veers right, before making a diagonal ascent almost straight to the top, avoiding the steep ground to the W. This made for a rather gradual ascent over the rough ground, with fine views over the steep E slopes of Mullach Glas and the S of Connemara. Great views from the top, over the immense Lough Corrib to the E, Joyce Country to the N and the rest of the Maumturks to the WNW, with even Mweelrea, Ben Gorm, the Sheeffrys, Devilsmother and Maumtrasna visible in the distance.
