cruach fhiarach, the brack, the brack SW top, from coilessan, fresh powder snow made hard work of it.robertphillips12/02/2017
40th Solo. From Ardgartan, following Forestry Commission path to Bealach between the two Corbetts. E ridge to Ben Donich, then NW ridge to The Brack. Dry, no wind, but cloud base between 500 700m all day, snow down to 400m, snow quite deep in places and lying on wet grass. Hard earned summits.RGibbs05/02/2017
A wet, misty day, with strong winds at the top. The route from Coilessan is so much easier if you can find the nice path on the east side of the ridge. Instead, I went along the top of the ridge with many ups and downs, which are not easy to negotiate in poor visibility. But I found the path on the way down, and it gave a quick and very easy descent. Thoroughly soaked, so Cnoc Coinnich will have to wait for another day (it's supposed to be fun, isn't it?).Gill15/12/2016

Climbed 3 times, most recently with girlfriend. Classic 'four seasons in a day' weather which saw us bathing in sunshine then cowering in a howf to escape lightning and huge hailstones. Climbed from Ardgartan centre. One steep mother of a hill!AndyBlair197225/04/2009

First time up the regular route.Grinner26/04/2007
Started at the Ben Donich CP just above Rest and be Thankful and walked down a good forest track for 3 miles. At the burn at 252040 I followed the well-marked path into the corrie NE of The Brack. A very interesting way up, fine, quite complex scenery. Then down the N ridge for Ben Donich,hence the starting place. Fine weather, cloud above summits.pwheeler25/03/2007

Climbed on a very cold but still day from Ardgarten to the summit by way of a frozen gully. Descended the north ridge to rejoin the forestry track. No easy way down to the track however as a result of forestry planting.Two others on the hill.Martin6605/01/2003
