Heading for the gap at Maumturk/Holy Well from Binn Bhriocain (Letterbreckaun) the ideal route is to head for the col close to Binn Bhriocain-NE Top. From Binn Bhriocain-NE Top the ridge descends in a north/north westerly direction heading for the gap. Clear navigation and route finding particularly in misty conditions is required as there is steep ground in the vicinity and a lack of defined features on the ground.

I came to Binn Bhriocáin NE Top from the main summit itself. On the way you'll come across this little pond, with great views over towards Killary. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/264/comment/6112/

Binn Bhriocain NE top can be seen as the 'pointy' top to the right of the photo. As you descend from Letterbreckaun to the Holy Well you - should - pass several ( freshly re-stacked ) cairns that lead you onto grassy bog and onto the small cairn the walker shown is arriving at. From here, a bearing of circa. NNE will get you to the Well in time for the steep onward climb to Maumturkmore. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/264/comment/6254/
