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.

Gave this a blast today. Tough tough going. Ended up doing the rough route as attached in grey (I think) The black is what I thought could be an option but does not look like an option in the flesh.

Did an hour and a half up and decided to call it a day and come down. According to Google we were at about 350 metres but if felt like a lot more. I honestly thought we were not too far from the top (611 metres) but was hard to know.

No clear path up, a lot of false tops and hard to know how much more it would have taken us. The going was very tough in parts, scrambling on all fours in bits. Very steep for me anyways, I am not a seasoned climber or anything. I would love to have made the top but decided against it as was not sure of the route, when you look up it’s daunting with no clear route. We tried to get to a shoulder and go up that but didn’t work out , then moved in from the shoulder as looked like some possibilities, but no luck and decided to throw the towel in after a good effort. Twas a good hour and a half climb but no cigar. We may give it a try another day if we could try and figure out the safest route Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/256/comment/23436/
