The day I was here I followed the Bhraoin ridge South to North until I came to (L78602 52298 A) where it splits and (if you are on the Chorchan circuit) one needs to ensure you’re heading towards Mam Eidhneach and not the Chochan Valley floor. The pic below was taken just before reaching the North summit i.e. the lump of rock to the right. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/149/comment/2207/
