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

Hot & sunny. Up E ridge (recommended the previous weekend by Colin Dodgson).jimbloomer27/06/1986
Start of a traverse of all the summits on the main ridge of Liathach, climbing on a clear path from just E of Glen Cottage. This looked like it would be really tough, but a well graded and- at times intriguing path across very steep slopes- made its way to just W of this first top. Well worth a visit as the drops are precipitous just a little way E, and the view of Beinn Eighe across the void is immense. Also visited with my brother, Pete, in 1992.pwheeler16/05/1986
