Walked up through the forest from top of Hells Glen. Good route, lovely views.IanHHill17/05/2018
From high point of B839. Had studied Google Earth and various reports, plus took a look at it from Cruach nam Mult. The plan worked : got to the first zig zag on the forestry track, then less than 100m of forestry bashing straight up to rejoin the track. Then 200m along the track to a passing place at 175070. The forestry is only about 100m wide at this point, so straight up. Led to fairly easy grassy slopes, slightly to the left (west) of the SW shoulder.Owen B15/05/2018

Parked at high point where crossroads of forestry tracks. Left for summit at 6.50, followed forestry track then onto boggy smaller track which takes you to a clearing. Go straight up follow gorge to summit. No views as low cloud. Came straight down. Met up with two shooters descending due to low cloud. Friendly. Company: Soloiandesbottes17/02/2017
Solo walk/jog. From Hells Lum forest road.amswanston10/07/2016
Is it really that long since the last hill? Stob an Eas NN 186074. S/F NN 167074. Short walk up Geaham, first hill in area. As indicated in guide book track goes to clearing in forest giving easy acces to open hill. Fresh snow from 400m giving slipery conditions on steep climb up side of stream. Crossed stream near top and easy access to summit cairn. Dry, overcast and cold with very strong wind at summit and exposed hillside but very little wind elsewhere. Good views with high cloudbase. Cumpas not working near summit? Decided to take longer, less steep way down west side due to slipery conditions.John Young01/01/2016

Solo. From start of forest road at NN190098. Climbed up hillside following traces of path to NE end of summit ridge of Stob an Eas. Summit is at SW end. My rather old OS map showed no intervening bumps but there were actually some, Went over more prominent ones. Very misty. There is a trig point on summit with a circle of small rocks round it. Highest point seems to be just outside circle. Back along summit ridge and on to Beinn an t-Seilich. Lying snow on highest parts.pwbellarby07/04/2013

From top of Hell's Glen road. Long zig zags up into forest to end of vehicle tracks. 1/2 mile on wide well used path to get a view of RP above tree line. Steeply up by stream then grass, rush patches aiming for a gap in first line of crags. Cuckoo heard from forest. More steep collar work to rise above rock outcrops and to top at 10.10. Magic view of Loch Goil.arranc16/05/2005
