Track Rating ..
[RWD version 1 ] Route over Bencorrbeg, Binn an tSaighdiura and Bencollaghduff from the eastern end of Gleninagh, descending from Maumina col back into the valley. The route also passes within easy hitting distance of Bencorr North Top. The route is the reverse of Wicklore's track 2279; this avoid the difficult northwards descent off Bencorrbeg.

The crux of the route is the ascent of Bencorrbeg from the floor of the valley, very steep and rocky with lots of opportunity for scrambing. Indeed if you are not happy scrambling this is probably not the route for you; you will find yourself constantly using your hands. That being said, the climb is comfortable enough. Care should be taken with hand and foot holds on the shattered rock, though it looks firm, some of it is very loose.
