Impressive rocky top on fine ridge with good views.
Short Summary created by markmjcampion, simon3, wicklore  11 Sep 2023
Binn Idir an Dà Log (BIDL) is the highest Maamturk and is a v impressive mountain. It has corries to the E and S, with steep ridges leading to the summit from the N and S. The upper few hundred metres is pure quartzite so good footwear is needed on the shattered stone and sandy trails carved out by countless boots. Care is needed on any walk in the Maamturks as there are few escape options in bad weather or if you tire. Amazing views of the 12 Bens and the S Mayo hills.

S. From the CP at L89193 49491 starA take the good track up to the large col known as Maumeen. Turn left to climb 400m up to Binn Chaonaigh over initial steep grassy slopes and then shattered rock. From BC there is a ridge leading first to BIDL SE Top, and then on to BIDL itself. This route involves about 700m ascent total and 5 kms distance with some sections are steep. Allow 2hrs+

From the same CP, you can walk a couple of km up the road to approx. L87338 52005 starB and from here head gently up across open country, eventually over steepening terrain to reach the Maumahoge col at L87778 53720 starC. Head N around the lake and follow an obvious track 1.5k SE to the summit. 2hrs+

N. Park at L87866 55710 starD and follow the obvious track S to L87941 54044 starE. Climb up steep grassy slopes to Maumahoge and head for the summit as above. 2hrs

BIDL is also summited as part of the Maamturks challenge which is a 25k walk from the E side or Corcóg to Leenaun village.

Notable tracks include track/3252, track/1863 and track/4090. Linkback:
