Metamagnetic behavior of the heavy fermion compound YbIr$$_2$$Zn$$_{20}$$ has been studied experimentally. The metamagnetic transition was clearly seen in the bulk magnetization curve. Near the metamagnetic critical field H$$_m$$ $$sim$$ 100 kOe, the effective mass of conduction electrons exhibits a significant enhancements. It is suggested that the present metamagnetism is related to the magnetic instability around the quantum critical point.
