hi, this weekend we went to connemara with 2 plans: maumturks and bens. in maumturks we wanted to make a walk from mam ean to maum turc, but the weather was quite bad on sat, clouds from 200m with continuous rain and wind, so we turned back in maum ean as we didnt dare to go up in those conditions and came back just after 5pm. cloud were bit higher - bout 450m - and with no rain, or radher significant one :o)

of course we walked just to maum ochoige due to late start. all the way the ridge was in clouds with poor visibility so we did unplanned detour from Binn Chaonaigh to Binn Mhairg and found out just when the ridge finished with drops. so just little hint. if you pass 2 big cairns on the top of Binn Chaonaigh, dont continue in their direction to north, even though there is visible path. you have to turn left just in between those 2 cairns and after few meters you will find a path going your desired direction.

finally we were rewarded with some views from Binn idir an dá Log (picture is showing Binn idir an dá Log SE Top from main summit )

and thanks to explained route down to lake in maum ochoige on www.simonstewart.ie the descend was without any problems even in our visibility (of course with map and compass).
the second day in bens was gorgous. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/225/comment/2809/
