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.

(continuation from Binn Chaoignah) It was easy to find my way on the rocky ridge from Binn Chaoignah to Binn idir an dá Log passing Binn idir an dá Log SE top. By a clear sky the view was going to Mweelrea on the north and i enjoyed the loneliness and slience of Maamturk mountains.
