On way up to Sgurr a' Mhadaih.Dugswell203/06/2002
Sunshine and blue skies so we did Glenbrittle- Sgurr Thuilm- Sgurr a'Mhadaidh- Sgurr a'Ghreadaidh-Glenbrittle, a walk/scramble of considerable commitment. Straightforward to this first summit, a narrow ridge but a walk. We couldn't work out a way we could get onto Sgurr a'Mhadaidh directly and went via An Dorus rather than risk not giving ourselves the opportunity to get on both Munros.pwheeler22/05/2001

Munro clear up before days of climbing: Sgurr na Banachdich to Sgurr a'Mhadaidh.Eddie06/06/1995
With a friend. Traverse of the Cuillin ridge from Sgùrr Thuilm to Bruach na Frithe. We left the youth hostel in Glen Brittle at 10:25 following the path near Allt a Choire Ghreadaidh. Reaching the slabs in Coire a Ghreadaidh we crossed the burn and headed up to Sgùrr Thuilm, going to the right of a prominent cliff to reach the summit. We walked along the ridge and scrambled up steeply to reach Sgùrr a Mhadaidh.pwbellarby04/09/1993
