with Jamie and dog Ben-Ji. NW through valley to the S and steeply up the western end of Sail Mhor. Snowy higher up as we get to the gash into it's northern side. great view of tripple buttress. A very spectacular viewpoint altogether and absolutely ought to be a Munro summit. Along and past the bad step on to Coinneach Mhor and then eventually rather steeply down to early into the valley. We should've gone further east first.vegibagger09/04/2012

Along the ridge from Sail Mhor.. a nice understatement. Given that it was key to the rest of Beinn Eighe, the 'Ugly Step' was the most committed scramble of the week and it took a bit of trial and error to find the best way. Lunch on the top of Coinneach Mhor in the sunshine. With Pete.pwheeler23/05/1992
