Binn idir an Dá Log (centre) viewed from Glenlosh valley. I can highly recommend the cottages there as a base for exploring the area. We were able to come down from L. Mam Ochoige into the valley and plop straight into the bath without the need for a long drive back to base.

Decending off Binn idir an Da Log with Cnoc Na hUilleann and Binn Bhriocan ahead. Mam Ochoige lake is just out of the line of sight but comes into view the lower you get. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/108/comment/1619/

Climbed this mountain recently in force 8 winds and dense fog. Navigation skills are essential and even then this is a tricky summit to find,.Geting down again was no easier. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/108/comment/471/

Beautiful day climbing from Maméan up Binn Chaonaigh, and on to Binn Idir an Dá Log - though had expected an easier descent, glad it wasn' t foggy. The guide book indicated that it was hard to find a way down when coming to the lake near Knocknahillion. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/108/comment/1736/

Climbed this mountain from Maumeen on a bright and sunny St. Patrikc's day. Very much enjoyed the spectacular views. And very sorry I could not take pictures (lend out the camera) In spite of all warnings I was still surprised by the steep and tricky descent to Mam Ochoige. Also the descent from the col to the west involves a nasty steep grass slope. Best to opt for the direct line down here and to keep the stream on your right hand. I think this climb would be a bit easier ascending then descending. This should give you a better view of the layout of the mountain which shoud simplify routefinding a bit. Also there should be less risk of slipping on the treacherous steep grass slopes. You can view and download my gps trail on http://www.wikiloc.com/wikiloc/view.do?id=325305 A.
