With Stephan sclater30/04/2016
Full winter conditions. Deep virgin snow, thick mist, zero visibility and dead calm. Fab day out. The last bit along the ridge from the xMT took one hour. Crazy! Thanks to Brian R for egging us on!Play2End20/01/2016
Cloud at 800 meters and highish winds. No problems, but that was about to begin with the ridge.Jhimmy05/10/2015

Grey Corries traverse plus Stob Ban.rhalstead25/06/2015
Arrived from Stob Ban up snow field making the climb easy and swift. Arriving on the ridge was a delight and we broke out the ice axes as a precautionary gesture to traverse ridge beyond experiencing spectacular sun drenched views of the Aonach nor and Ben Nevis in the distance.. There were cornices both sides and a sharp ridge of snow along the top.david.walker4009/05/2015
Lime Tree Fort William Weekend. Perfect sunny calm cross walk along Grey Corries in snow and neve with John Moss, Graeme Wilkinson, Andy Paton, Tom Oldham and Paul Tenan. Great views. Maybe one of best ever winter walks. 8 1/2 hours.alexmaclennan13/03/2015

7 of 9: From Stob a Choire Leith.ChrisR27/05/2014
Cloud and rain at the top. Still plenty of snow around. Good views of Loch Laggan on the descent.darradog25/05/2014
From Coirechoille, drove first mile to track jct. My 3rd visit to the top, this time via the bothy,N bank of gorge, NE then NW and over Stob Coire na Ceannan- a long, satisfying route that took ages as the impressive but easy ridge to the Marilyn top was snowed up, covering a little path that has been worn. Continued along wonderful switchback ridges to Stob Coire Easain for a descent of its easy N ridge (useful with the snow). Messy finish by dam and over old tramway bed- forest roads would surely have been better. Other visits from Stob Ban with my brother, his first Munros after a very nasty head injury (cycling) and a big step in his recovery; another on a wet day- very slippery rock, very slow going on the quartzite.pwheeler24/05/2014
