Climbed solo. Started from A87 Loch Cluanie at start of path to Glen Affric. Left path straight away heading up steep slopes by a stream to gain S ridge of A' Chraileag at 750m (actually a small path all the way). Continue to A' Chraileag (fine cairn), Stob Coire na Chraileag, Mullach Fraoch-choire. Pinnacles on Na Geurdain ridge look scary from a distance but are easily avoided on skirting paths (first east, then west of pinnacles). Returned to col at 949m. Took zig-zag path into Coire Odhar. Path soon disappears. Traverse slopes to reach the Glen Affric path (lots of fresh water springs on way!). Return on path to A87 (feels long!). Fine sunny day, and dry underfoot. Gales were forecast but didn't come. A lovely ridge walk, comparable with others nearby.jamessteel10026/07/2018
From A87 at end of An Caorann Mor, track directly up A' Chraileag to SE end of ridge, along ridge to summit and on to Stob Coire na Craileig and Mullach Fraoch-choire, descending by track from corrie rim into Coire Odhar, then back along tracks in An Caorann Morkdbennett19/06/2018
A fine ridge ascent from A chralaig. Fantastic traverse. Dry clear weather with specatacular views to remote la escape. Spring flowers everywhere. Tadpoles aplenty. Descended to valley along path across bogs and long Val Eye walk to road..Met several people. A 7hour walk.david.walker4010/06/2018

2nd munro of the day. Left packs at Bealach and completed interesting ridge walk to smaller cairn than on A'Chralaig. Then back to bags and walkout.dave neilson08/06/2017
With Penda. From car park E of Cluanie Inn. Over A'Chralaigh on way out. Hot in wind shadow, very cold in direct wind. Went around the pinnacles but still found them scary! Long, weary boggy walk down valley leading to Glen Affric, lots of deer about (counted 56 but there were more). 11.5 miles, 7.5 hours.beorwulf05/05/2017

261st - Solo - From Glen Affric YH north to south across ridge to Cluanie Inn. Overcast but clear of summits, light/steady rain.RGibbs29/08/2012
Quite a hairy and narrow path between the pinnicles and towers on the ridge leading to the top. Not a scramble, more like a clamber, but some parts are inches away from a big drop. Fell into a bog on long journey back!Jhimmy16/07/2012
Tried to get to this peak before in winter but failed 50 metres as snow too dangerous for me. This time enjoyed the ridge in and enjoyed the peak. I would do this one again. Went back via A'Chralaig to see that cairn again. Company: Soloiandesbottes04/06/2012
Solo, 2nd of 2. Easy enough walk over from A'Chralaig and some good scrambling on way to summit. Back to belach to pickup back and then follow a faint path down before a boggy walkout via an caorann mor.bowzi01/06/2012
Was going to be full horseshoe with all tops from Glen Affric but low cloud caused problems with route finding so settled for half and finished down valleydickscroop01/04/2012
