Showers. Ascent from Glen Strathfarrar, with great guide Richard Kermode. Continued to Sgurr na Lapaich and Carn nan Gobhar.Chris Blake18/07/2019
Bagged as part of a guided hike with the legend that is Steve Fallon, he holds the record for having completed the Munros x 15 times now!! The hike started at the Mullardoch dam at 8am from where we were raced up the loch in 10mins in a very small boat. We hiked back over the four Munros west to east in this order: An Socach (1069m), An Riabhachan (1130m), Sgurr na Lapaich (1150m) & Carn nan Gobhar (992m). It was overcast most of the day with the sun only appearing on the final summit, which made a sunny and pleasant walk out along a new hydro track, 9:45 hours all in.chillyman819/06/2019
