Weather fair.MountainMac20/09/2019
4/4 munros - weather improved a little on summit - got a view to west. snow eased. Some mildly tricky scrambling in deep snow to summit. Then descended back to Bealach and out through Am Fraoch-Choire. Now dark. Nav around the 'ravine' is difficult but found a descent route just to east side of the waterfallwychwood28/01/2019
From A87 near Cluanie Inn, along track to SE and up Creag a' Mhaim SE ridge, then along S Shiel ridge to Creag nan Damh, descending back to A87 Eas-nan-Arm bridgekdbennett19/08/2018
Gosh that was tough. The lowest point on the ridge, but thankfully the lowest of the munros but still around 200m of ascent. Relief that the 7 are done. A wee bit drizzle but thankfully it stayed away until we reached the road. Lift arrived at the road about 10 minutes after us so all was good for my lift back to the car.LizzieG07/07/2018

With Hannah as part of Cluanie Ridge Desperate Stan18/07/2013
I descended the NE rib, which was fine but probably steeper and more difficult than the Bealach Duibh Leac descent. I kept to the right edge of the forest at the bottom, through a hole in the fence, and path around the edge of the wood to reach the road at the bridge, which was okay. I read posts describing the other route through the forest as being a nightmare! However I did see new deer fencing going up so keeping to the right of the forest might become trickier in future. maybe the route through the forest will be cleared, or someone will cut a new hole through the fence!steveroberts12/07/2013

At last, about an hour from Lochain and it's clouded over as we reach the top. Still have a punishing descent but it's been an epic day, but don't believe the hype, you can bag 7, but it's anything but easy! 10hr15 for all 7.bowzi03/09/2010
