Climbing goodish ground and rock from Carn a'Mhadaidh and on to NE Top. Stood on top of the rock, just in case tamperer does the same.Eddie19/08/2016
Poor thing destined to neither Marilyn nor Simm. Interesting route finding from NE top.Martin R23/05/2016
Climbed from Kinloch. Track to 270m contour then direct ascent of top (Pt 501). Around ridge on complex terrain to summit. Had an easier descent to head of track at Carn a'Mhadaidh bealach and return along track.Chris Peart25/11/2012
