Round of Hallival, Askival, Trollaval and Ainshval from Kinloch Castle. Reached the east top, easy at first but gets harder, and a safe scramble to the true west summit looked uncertain. Fortunately two other guys appeared who assisted me. Back down to the south east, dropping below the Bealach an Fhuarain to avoid difficulties.Topographer5714/07/2019
2 nd trip to Rum ; a fine exposed top but not difficult on a good weather day; fine viewsdmckeith04/06/2019
From Ainshaval. Knew to keep to the right off Ainshaval initially, but despite good maps (hard copy and OS on the phone), in the hill fog missed the path. Ended up to the left (west) of the higher crags. Tried to find a route to the right, but blocked by the crags. Didn't fancy returning to the summit. Cloud base at 700m, from where I figured out I could find a way down and then contour across the scree to the baelach. Undignified bum shuffling but not too bad. Top of Trollaval also in hill fog but knew to go round the NE side and minor scrambling got me to the true top OK.Owen B19/06/2018

MMC trip to Rum. Day 3. Perfect day for traverse as overcast, light wind, high cloud. Technically easy but long ascent from final top and a dreadfully boggy walk out the Papadil/ Dibidil track. 13 hoursalexmaclennan18/05/2015
Hadn't really researched the route so quite surprised at the scrambling involved. Great summit.KevPalmer17/06/2014
from Kinloch CraigW25/11/2013
Mad one day dash w Jenx due to weather forecast, dire Sun-Tues so early boat Sat and scamper round Rum Cuillin tops and back for last boat home. Great hills, all Corbetts, Graham and odd other top for good measure. Ok traversing lines between cola made for quicker return to start.nordicstar14/09/2013
round of askival, trallval and ainshval.robertphillips24/08/2013
A superb airy double summit perched above big drops. A lovely place to sit in the evening sunshine. Our scrambling descent line due south was 'interesting' - led by the courageous Darren -and surely not the normal line -a bit of prior research might have paid off?Chris Pearson25/07/2012
Did whole ridge from Dibidil. Perfect visibility with views from Western Isles to Ben Nevis.AndrewFinnimore28/05/2012
Visit of Highland Geological Society to Rum. Initially with others but continued alone. Up path beside Allt Slugan a' Choilich into Coire Dubh and then SE to col with point 411m. Went up NW ridge to summit of Hallival and down W ridge. Up N ridge of Askival and down W ridge to Bealach an Oir. Up E ridge of Trallval. Two tops on Trallval. A bit of a scramble from the first top to the second, higher one, but not difficult. Returned to Bealach an Oir and contoured tediously round the head of Atlantic Corrie to get back to Coire Dubh.pwbellarby21/04/2012
