Approaching this mountain from Mam na BhFonsai you get a full view of the challenge ahead. The wind was howling over the lip of Mam na BhFonsai so I did not hang around for too long. Facing me was the steepest climb on the Chochan Circuit - up to Binn Corrs NW top and then a final push to the SE summit as shown in the pic.
