From Old Glencoe Road (NN 10658 58792). Followed the Pap of Glencoe path and then headed east along a clear path at NN 12363 58605. Lower sections muddy and badly eroded in places, lots of loose scree in the upper sections. Low cloud so no view from the summit except seeing a herd of wild goats! Returned via the same route.david23020122/08/2018

2nd time up the Gach! Weather was perfect - warm and not a cloud in the sky. Did with Paul,Adam and Mark. Cracking day out - nobody struggled. Really enjoyed this one. This time we descended to the NW ending up on the road about 2K up from the Clachaig - definitely the best descent option.scholesy03/06/2016
The last of 6 Munros in 4 days. Climbed from Glencoe Independent Hostel. Went with full winter kit but needed sun tan lotion and shorts. Got to love Scottish weather in March. Absolutely stunning views of Ben Nevis to one side and the Aonach Eagach ridge to the other. Mind-blowing. Started at 8.45am. Back down by 3pm for a cuppa in the glorious sunshine.liljonb16/03/2016

Anonach Eagach - with Rach. Weather was very good, windy and wet to begin but clearing as we reaches the top. Great ridge walk with some technical scrambling. Climbing down some of the rocks proving the most difficult bit. Great Day!scholesy29/09/2012
Anonach Eagach - amazing walk. First time I've done a ridge walk or proper scrambling and whilst it was doable there was a sustained stretch of scrambling which as a beginner required lots of concentration. That being said, thoroughly enjoyable and defo recommend to the adventurous walker.Rachel29/09/2012
