East west traverse with Barbara Jones and her mountain guide Jim Sutherland on utterly glorious conditions.

Third day of five-day trip with DW & SL. Classic Liathach traverse. The scrambling was easier than I expected - principally because it is is essentially ALL avoidable if you want it to be. We had an awesome day - clear weather, no wind across ridge/summits, but it was hazy.AGWilliamson21/09/2014

Traverse of hill w MVW/DR/BES/MT/NB - from Lochan an Iasgair car park, along full length of tops/pinnacles to descend via Tuill Bhairi gill to roadnordicstar10/04/2001
Chris and me met Rick, Mike W and Burt et al at Torridon Youth Hostel. Foot and mouth in full swing but allowed onto Liatach and Ben Eighe. Ascended at back of Spidean a'Choire Leith climbing on icy rocks. Lots of snow on top but soft. Walked the ridge as far as the gully at Mullach an Rathain (Liathach) - Am Fasarinen where with just a rope and no crampons or ice axe we deemed it too risky. Burt me and Chris retrieted and others went on. Had to abseil down ridge Liathach - Spidean a'Choire Leith as snow had now frozen solid. Descended Toll Maitheach path.Mark T10/04/2001
