Heading for the gap at Maumturk/Holy Well from Binn Bhriocain (Letterbreckaun) the ideal route is to head for the col close to Binn Bhriocain-NE Top. From Binn Bhriocain-NE Top the ridge descends in a north/north westerly direction heading for the gap. Clear navigation and route finding particularly in misty conditions is required as there is steep ground in the vicinity and a lack of defined features on the ground.
