You cross this to get to the munro. It is an easy final ascent. If you come up the steep nose from A87 it's a brutal climb but the views are worth itAristotle Chip15/05/2016

my first ascent, 2 in group, climbed on the way to skye, overcast but a clear day. followed stalkers path up, meallan odhar, then the ridge proper, nice and narrow with an awkward down climb from a minor top, would be nasty in winter! continued on over and up the final steep section, a minor bump then the summit for lunch, descended down a steep and loose gully, contoured into the col and climbed up to a minor top. then south and up hill again, gaining the first top then the summit of sgurr na sgeine. returned along the ridge to faochag and a very steep descent back to glen shiel.rum doodle 12/07/1997
