The weather was supposed to be terrible today, with heavy rain/snow and high winds, so we decided to go for a walk in the Mamores instead of heading up to Ben Nevis. We did the westernmost part of the Ring of Steall, heading up An Gearanach and east to Stob Ban. A nice ridge walk, in what turned out to be pretty good weather.pwithnall24/03/2015
Completed on Day 2 of Mamores traverse from Mullach nan Coirean to Binnein Mor. Cloudless morning, so great views in all directions, especially to Ben Nevis.quadbarrel24/08/2014

We climbed this one after deiving up from Tebay. My final Mamore (but Alex's first). After crossing the burn below the falls it was a straightforward ascent up the old stalker's path. We had good views but enjoyed a shower or two at the top.darradog26/05/2013

Ring of Steall completed at 2pm, after leaving top of Sgurr a'Mhaim at 10.40am. This bit of the ridge was trickiest in bitter winter conditions. Left car 0830; arrived back at car 1630 after a lift part way from top car park in Glen Nevissignyred22/02/2013

Final summit of an anti-clockwise round of the Ring of Steall and the most awkward, especially ascending An Garbhanach and trying to find a safe line over the top. A long winding path down to Glen Nevis and a wade through the river.Windy Corner25/07/2012
