Wow... Stob Dearg and Stob na Broige via curved ridge. Airy scrambling and breathtaking exposure on the ascent then an enjoyable ridge walk before returning down Lairig Gartain. Outstanding!Chris Mac30/06/2018

From Lagangarbh up Coire na Tulaich. Was easier than I was expecting. Then up to Stob Dearg. Over Stob na Doire,Stob Coire Altruim and Stob na Broige. Weather stayed dry and I saw nobody on the ridge at all. Did go to actual summit but wasn't aware it was the summit until after. The ridge was in cloud for the most part but I only had a bit of light rain. Was lucky enough to get a few breaks.isabelle29/05/2017
Epic day on the mountain. Enjoyed climbing through the snow onto the col. Then had driving snow all the way to the summit as the clouds lifted and we feasted on the incredible views.simonjallen04/04/2017

I'd done this before so got a guide so my brother and I could go via Curved Ridge. Climbers often do it unroped, scramblers roped. We are scramblers. Excellent.pwheeler24/05/2015
