Walked from Victoria Bridge up Stob a'Choire Odhair on a dry but grey day. Quite warm and windless. Ideal walking weather. Followed that up with an ascent of Stob Ghabhar and then back down via the waterfall. The route up Stob Ghabhar from Coirean Lochain side seemed too steep, loose and crumbling for a safe descent.honey badger17/09/2017

Parked in car park near Victoria Bridge (NN 27051 41832). Took track west to Clashgour Hut, then boggy path north by Allt Toaig. After crossing Allt Caolainn Duibh we took the path that zig-zags steeply up the south ridge, at an easier gradient further up on approach to summit cairn. Walk continued to Stob Ghabhar.
