From the railway bridge over the Crom Allt then up due east besides the forest then onwards over open ground to Meall Buidhe. Then along the wide ridge to Beinn Odhar, taking in ever more superb views in all directions as we climbed higher. A 30 minute nap on the sunny summit before down the SSW flank back to the car. Will take just over a couple of hours if you miss out the kip.summitter12/06/2020

From layby on A82 just N of Tyndrum, followed track up Beinn Odhar, down to bealach between Alt Cumhang and Allt a' Chaol Ghlinne and up to Beinn Chaorach, then along ridge to summit of Cam Chreag, descending to Coreheynan, followed tracks down to Auchtertyre, then back to Tyndrum along West Highland Waykdbennett24/08/2019
From Tyndrum, followed West Highland Way then once over the railway bridge joined grassy path directly to the summit. The path is indistinct in places, one or two avoidable boggy sections midway but mostly very dry underfoot. Fine views from the summit.david23020106/05/2019

A glorious day's bagging of 3 Corbetts from Tyndrum. Clear views, sunny and a cool breeze. Beinn Odhar is easily the best of the 3 hills, a fine pointy cone, but Beinn Chaorach and Cam Chreag are also very fine. Perfect easy going, even on the steep ups and downs. I went out to the end of the Cam Chreag ridge (just in case of future resurveys), and this gives good views along Glen Lochay. I wouldn't recommend the direct descent from the 859m bealach. It's fine down to the fence, but then it's purgatorial going through the regenerating woodland, for which read lots of hidden holes containing dead saplings, misguidedly planted in a bog. It's only short though, and the going gets better once you find the ATV track. Back to Tyndrum on the West Highland way. Overall, an excellent walk. One of the few Corbett rounds where there is no stalking.Gill22/09/2016

The biggest corbett day you can do on foot. Got the full five starting with this slog. just went straight up and was gulping by the summit. Choose a cloud free day for this walk. Perfect. Company: Jake the Black Lab.iandesbottes12/10/2013

W Jenx - circuit of the Five from nr. Chrom Alt, where old bridge over rail line to N of Tyndrum crosses. 2000m climbing.nordicstar01/07/2006
Beinn Odhar (NN 338338) & Beinn Chaorach (NN 359328) S/F NN330316 Cold, bright clear winter day on snow covered hills. Second ascent tiring in snow, so slower than anticipated. Planned route of discent into Crom Allt was observed to be very icy on ascent, and probably unsafe in failing light. Used alternative route of discent along S ridge of Beinn Chaorach to raod at NN348288. Bit late back to car but safe.John Young01/01/2006
