Ascended from Alltchaorunn via Allt Coire Ghiubhasan valley and steeply up to the col. Didnít fancy descending the ascent route so opted for dropping down the NNE ridge to the River Etive - river looked crossable when looked at from car earlier in day. Was only up to my knees, so boots got wet for walk back along road but really nice circular walk. Solo.assynt_bob12/07/2020

With GHC on a blustery afternoon. Usual route. I thinks I lost my glasses half way up, or was it on the summit? Struggled to return by the same river crossing as the water had risen in the April showers.Play2End20/04/2018
Weather fair.MountainMac01/09/2017
From Alltchaorunn on wet and misty day. Very steep (and not very clear) ascent to beallach at foot of SE ridge then easier climb to flat summit. Descent to WSW to rejoin path further W.RobertP24/05/2017
Being allergic to thrashing up steep, blank hillsides, I eschewed the Alltchaorunn route in favour of the rather nice NE ridge. The slight downside was that the Etive was a bit higher than it looked from the banks...but well worth getting soggy feet.Gill05/04/2017
From Glen Etive. Traversed base of Buachaille Etive Mor; ascended via Coire na Tullaich; visited Stob Dearg; traversed to Stob na Broige; retraced steps to low point in ridge at NN192527 and descended SE to road being careful not to get trapped between gullies formed by burns. Ascended Beinn Mhic Chasgaig (Marilyn 1100!) from Allt Coire Ghiubhasan gaining west ridge. Descended back to Glen Etive via NE ridge. Fantastic temperature inversion all day - very luckyraffemeister20/01/2017

MB. Glen Etive from Coiletir to Stob Dubh, Beinn Ceitlein then crossing Allt Coire Ghiubhasan (by passing the 'fortified' bridge at Alltchaorunn!) onto Beinn Mhic Chasgaig, finishing at the Kings House. Fine bright sub-zero day.Vin28/12/2005
MC JC. Climbed from G. Etive up NE ridge. Very good route. Sunny spells, but very muggy and thundery. Stole the summit and escaped before lightning broke. Waded the River Etive on return. Plenty of frogs!Martin6622/05/2005

Spotted this Corbett to the west of the ridge and as it was so close I just had to make the out and back trip in order to visit it. yorkie06/06/2002
Barricaded gate prevented easy crossing of stream. 500m upstream where it divided crossed with wellies and boots around neck. Still got water in both boots. Arran made her own way. On VWDP for 2m and clamber up steep grass and scree runs to col. Into mist for final 500' to top at 13.45.arranc11/04/2002
