Ó Cíobháin gives Beann, 'peak', as the true name of this mountain. Apparently the name Bruach na Binne really belonged to a feature a few miles to the W overlooking the Bridia Valley and was mistakenly applied to this peak by the sappers.   Broaghnabinnia is the 82nd highest place in Ireland. Broaghnabinnia is the most northerly summit in the Dunkerron Mountains area.

Circuit of Gearhameen
by peter1  26 Mar 2012
I climbed this as part of a walk taking in Stumpa Duloigh as well on March 19 this year. Following suggestions on this site and from guide books, I decided to head straight up the steep face above Lough Reagh...Bl**dy Hell!...it was tough or I am not as fit or both! After a particularly difficult piece, i had to sit down and make sure i kept my breakfast in...However, I survived and managed to complete the route to Stompa. The earlier plan of including Stumpa West Top was shelved due to wind and rain and the condition of the party (me...). Altogether, 6 hours for 10k and 1003 metres of ascent.

Fab mountain without the scramble
by sandman  5 Jul 2012
Park at V82180 81301 A walk back over bridge enter farm gate on right and when you reach sheep pens keep left and follow rough track at side of Lough Reagh to end continue on to point V81264 80627 B from this point continue on for app 150meters and take a bearing for the summit picking your way thru the boulders. A truly fantastic mountain and by using this route you do not need to scramble but be advised the summit is just a farm fence with blue rope attached.......time easy up and down four hours Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/80/comment/14707/

Great looking, summit disappoints.
by Colin Murphy  30 Sep 2015
This summit is as tough as they come - there isn't any easy way up. It is unrelentingly steep up to about 500m. The views are magnificent and there are many impressive precipitous drops and rock formations. Unfortunately the summit doesn't live up to the promise of the climb. Once you get to the E-W summit area the terrain is just a dull, grassy slog with barely a fist-sized stone to break the monotony. The views in all directions are great however. It is a mountain that looks far more impressive from a distance, as can be seen from the shot, taken from the upper slopes of Mothaillín. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/80/comment/18336/

"Easy" approach from the south
by Bunsen7  5 Jun 2018
I took the gruelling but safe approach to this summit from the south as part of an out and back detour from the circuit of the peaks around the Gearhameen valley. This involved a sustained pull up grassy heathery ground from around V805 808 C.

My route was similar to track 3080.

Other approaches to the summit would appear to involve far more exposure, and rockier ground or gullies. The apparent route up the west ridge looks particularly exposed when viewed from the ridge north of Stumpa Duloigh. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/80/comment/19939/
