Climbed as part of the Beinn Dearg group, from Inverlael forest. Biked up a track as far as the edge of the trees, then bagged Eididh nan Clach Geala (926m), Meall nan Ceapraichean (977m), Cona' Mheall (977m) and Beinn Dearg (1084m). Beinn Dearg is my 50th Munro this year (there was a couple of Corbetts, Grahams & Donalds too) and 100th since August 2016.chillyman813/10/2019

My last Munro. Thanks for the champers Wedgy!summitter07/09/2015
Long walk in, fairly easy bag. Weather changeable from hailstones to sun to cold wind. Low cloud teased me all the lay there and lifted as I descented. Amazing wall so high up on the mountain. Must have been tough men (and women?) to have built it.Jhimmy08/07/2015

MMC weekend in Inverlael. Bein Dearg 4 with Robert Wight, Eunice Coop, John Berry and Jeremy Idle. Lovely sunny blue sky day with cloud inversion to west. Microspikes on mixed neve, snow and rock.alexmaclennan14/03/2015
Fourth day of five-day trip with DW & SL. Linda joined us for this day too, but did not do all four peaks with us. Classic Beinn Dearg horseshoe from Inverlael. This was an easier day than expected. The ascent to the ~850m col is very gentle, making it very easy. Good weather, with a haze 'inversion'. Descent from Eididh nan Clach Geala.AGWilliamson22/09/2014
4th of 4. Quick refreshement stop at wall and hauled myself up Beinn Dearg. Views simply stunning, took it all in for a few mins before heading back down then following path back to bike and then a cycle out and back to the van a couple of km down the road.bowzi29/09/2013
