As Tim Robinson points out, the Ordnance Survey has been incorrectly calling this mountain 'Leckavrea' for a hundred and fifty years. Leckavrea (Ir. Leic Aimhréidh) is the mountain to the E on the other side of Mám Aodha.   Corcóg is the 265th highest place in Ireland. Corcóg is the most southerly summit and also the second most easterly in the Maamturks area.

I climbed Corcog as the last summit of a fantastic loop, which also included Binn Mhor and Mullach Glas (see track 3238). From the col with Mullach Glas, I kept to the left of the fence and followed it as it veers right, before making a diagonal ascent almost straight to the top, avoiding the steep ground to the W. This made for a rather gradual ascent over the rough ground, with fine views over the steep E slopes of Mullach Glas and the S of Connemara. Great views from the top, over the immense Lough Corrib to the E, Joyce Country to the N and the rest of the Maumturks to the WNW, with even Mweelrea, Ben Gorm, the Sheeffrys, Devilsmother and Maumtrasna visible in the distance.
