This peak is unnamed on the OSI Discovery map, surely one of the highest peaks to lack a name. The name Corranabinnnia is found in walking guides. It is also named Cushcamcarragh (from Ir. Coiscéim Charrach, 'rocky step') in atlases. This name also appears on Bald's map of Mayo (1830), while the name Curranabinna is applied to the cirque north of the peak. Walks: for a route taking in Bengorm, Corranabinnia and Glennamong, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 72-73.   Corranabinnia is the third highest mountain in the North Mayo area and the 101st highest in Ireland.

From the col with Glennamong there is a fairly narrow ridge (well it gives the feeling of as you can see from the pic) with steep drops to the double loughs of Corryloughaphuill to the NW and into the heavily forested valley of the Glennamong River to the SE. The climb is short over ground which poses no difficulty. There is a level area before the final rise to the trig point at the summit. Luckily the mist had cleared from the summit and i was afforded the breathtaking views available out over Clew Bay with its myriad of islands and over the rest of the big hills in the Nephins - Glennamong, Nephin Beg and Glencar. There was more evidence of other walkers here and would seem to suggest that the horseshoe taking in Corranabinnia Sw top, Corranabinnia and Ben Gorm would be the more popular route, not that I saw anyone on any of these hills over the 2 days spent here. There is a short drop down to the col with the SW top which looked very daunting with a sharp serrated rocky ridge to negoiate. To the SE the remainder of the walk along the ridge to Ben Gorm also looked quite a handfull, having already spent a good few hours walking and carrying tent etc. I left my pack at the summit to make the return journey to the SW top.
