We stayed at the Glencoe ski resort so we headed up the path directly inline with the ski tow. This was an interesting walk through the levels of the ski runs. we made a direct line alongside the last ski tow to the summit, glad its summer and not winter to bag this munro. Easy descent down if a bit boggy towards Glas Coire and back to ski centre. with RichieZoe Little21/07/2019

A steady pull up on a fine sunny day with a nice breeze, perfect for hill walking. Next stop Creise.Walker Dan17/05/2019
Light dusting of snow on the tops this morning. Started at the ski centre and I walked up, under the ski lift for a while, and then on grass and then stones up to Meall a' Bhuiridh and then down and up the ridge to Creise. Great views on top, particularly of Ranoch Moor. Came back the same way. Had a quick drink in the newly rebuilt Kingshouse.tsharp04/05/2019

From Glencoe Mountain Resort (NN 26643 52513) - Meall a' Bhuiridh - Mam Coire Easain - Creise. Usual route under the chairlift then the long slog to the summit of Meall a' Bhuiridh. Enjoyable, easy scramble up to Mam Coire Easain then very little ascent along the ridge to the summit of Creise. Return by the same route involving the re-ascent of Meall a' Bhuiridh.david23020101/05/2019

Heavy snow and low vis. Done with Oliver Stephenson on WBMC weekend trip to SMC hutWendynicholls20/01/2013
There was no sign of the forecase storms and, as it was still early I walked up the MTB trail to the top of the chairlift. After a chat with a Scots GEnt who had lived in Luton I carried on up the boggy slope to the top of the Ski Lifts and then on to the summit. Still no storms so set of fot Creise.darradog21/08/2012
MMC walk. Blackmount traverse south to north. Epic day and great weather. Met David and robin from US.alexmaclennan12/08/2012
Ascent via Coire an Easain. Not recommended! Intention was to meet Dave Hewitt\'s 25th anniverary traverse of the Watershed celebration on Clach Lethad, but the steep grass slopes had wet fresh snow on them. I opted for the security of a more rocky ascent to the col with Creise. It was horrid! Lots of wet snow, with many falls.fasgadh12/05/2012
