|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_bob||12/07/2020|
|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.||Play2End||20/04/2018|
|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.||RobertP||24/05/2017|
|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.||Gill||05/04/2017|
|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 lucky||raffemeister||20/01/2017|
