Parked in the Lower Falls car park near Achriabhach. I passed through a gate nearer to Achriabhach than the car park and followed a path south, somewhat faint and muddy initially, up the hillside. Higher up the path became more defined and joined the N ridge of Stob Ban. At an altitude of about 850m there is a steep tower. The scramble up it was straightforward as there was not much snow on it. On the final slopes to Stob Ban there were snowfields which were ascended although they could have to some extent been avoided. From the summit of Stob Ban I then traversed all tops to reach the summit of Mullach nan Coirean.pwbellarby06/04/2000

a long day and one I call 'Pride comes before a fall' First of a two an a great half week trip. week 1 with CRMC in Gairlochy, week 2 in Ullapool in rented Dolphin House and four days in leverburgh with Roddy Coles southern tip of Harris. With Alison Fleetwood Helen Morton and Gill Brooke-Taylor, Mullach na Coirean and into mist, I'd done this ridge before in 1992. After Mullach Nan Coirean SE top the three women stop to consult their map and compass as I boldly say, 'This is the way' as I head off down the slope in the cloud towards the direction of what I think is the next col on the ridge. I turn round to find that the they aren't following me and are still checking the map and are gently fairly sure that my 'boldly go' route wasn't right. Having retraced back and checked with them I realise my 'bold no compass march on' was going to take me straight down SE to the west highland way!! We instead head correctly ENE along the ridge with me feeling rather sheepish with my tail between vegibagger05/04/1998
