Climbed after Sgurr na Ciche.chriswatson11/04/2014
Set off from our camp at the east col at dawn (4am)to avoid the mid day heat. It was great to be up and moving as the sun rose on such a beautiful day. Why did people build the wall along the ridge which is the middle of knowhere? It will probably be there for thousands of years now, until the next ice age sweeps it away.mindlessflogger11/07/2013
2nd of 3. Back to where I dumped the pack and follow the wall! Stunning views no matter where you look. Struggling with cramp at times on a warm and windy day, legs and arms already tired from pushing and dragging the bike earlier.bowzi07/07/2013

Estimated date - done with Simon. When I got down to the col from here Simon, who had been out of sight for most of the walk along the ridge was waiting and very cold. I opted out of the last Munro so that he could do it there and back quickly. My turn to get cold and I should have done it as well. Long walk back to the car. (11K)Aimless Rambler17/05/2007

4 of 5: From Garbh Chioch Bheag.ChrisR05/09/2005
After a bivvy in upper Glen Kingie at NM948953. A friend with had to return for work commitments so I left on my own at 04:25. Went up to the col and then to An Eag (873m). I continued to Sgùrr nan Coireachan (953m). There are bits of scrambling but the rock was dry. I continued westwards although the rock was damp or wet and care was needed. I reached the summit of Garbh Chioch Beag (968m), Garbh Chioch Mhòr (1013m) and Sgùrr na Ciche (1040m). The weather had remained dry.pwbellarby24/06/2005
