Missed the bottom of the path and had to start up a steep gully, found the path, out of the forestry over a stile onto steep moorland along the fence then up on snowy ground with patches of ice. Crampons to the summit, wind increasing and whipping up powder snow and covering our tracks. Views around with sunny patches apart from the Ben which had its head in cloud the whole time. Returned the same way following path the right way. Lovely snow day. John S and Ann T, CSSC.Ellie's Hills26/02/2020

Started in Glen Nevis and I walked up Stob Ban and Mullach nan Coirean. Nice walk up to Stob Ban, bit of scree coming down and then a very nice straightforward walk for the rest of the way. Great views and weather except for a few small snow slurries. Particularly good views of Ben Nevis and the West Highland Way.tsharp05/05/2019
2nd attempt at the hill. 1st attempt was 17th Feb 2019 but had to turn around just before the summit Plateau due to weather strong winds low cloud an hail. 2nd attempt completed weather low cloud with some wind. 2hours 35 minutes. jps66621/02/2019

From Lower Falls Car Park in Glen Nevis (NN 14495 68302) - Stob Ban - Mullach nan Coirean East Top - Mullach nan Coirean SE Top [South Top] - Mullach nan Coirean. Followed clear, easy path alongside Allt Coire a' Mhusgain before steep ascent of Stob Ban. Very boggy descent of Mullach nan Coirean approaching the forest section.david23020128/09/2018
From Polldubh up NW ridge of Sgurr a' Mhaim to summit, south along ridge over Stob Choire a' Mhail to Sgurr an Iubhair, continuing W to Stob Ban and then Mullach nan Coirean (via SE top), descending NE ridge to Polldubhkdbennett13/05/2018

After Stob Ban - in snow above 800m - no significant difficulties with this summit - finished in the dark thoughwychwood11/02/2017
Alternative route to previous, parked 1mile south of Blarmachfoldack to go up NNW easy going ridge of Meall a'Chaorainn first? Cold but clear of snow save a dusting. Continued to Stob Ban and descent via SW ridge to the West Highland Way. Great way to get sea views all the way up unlike Glen Nevis routes.N.Morters03/12/2016

A lovely warm day for Stob Ban then Mullach nan Coirean. Decent along the deer fence to the forest path was pretty hard going so would choose the path down from the first stile met along the fence, but cant vouch that it would be any easier since I didnt go that way.Canny01/06/2016
Great views of Ben Nevis during whole traverse from Stob Ban to here. Great walk to here, but descent not so pleasant underfoot.mcbboyd14/05/2016

On a two day backpack around the Mamores and Grey Corries. Mainly dry and clear. Excellent views. See my blog post for more details: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>alistairpooler06/10/2012
Some views when coming over from Stob Ban. Cloudy at the summit but dry. Weatehr cleared as I went down and it became a lovely sunny day (typical)! Walked up to the Steall Falls in the afternoon.darradog23/08/2012
Excellent ridgewalk with Max in low cloud. Views from Bealachs and shoulders. Chatted to Richard from Devon on the way down.alexmaclennan29/06/2012
From Achriabhach. A round of Mullach nan Coirean, Stob Ban and Sgurr a'Mhaim.rhalstead24/06/2012
1st of 2, solo. Critical to find the path leading up the side of the forest and to take the stone steps in the chopped forest! Met up with 3 guys from Cumbernauld the way up, they'd went cross country :Dbowzi28/04/2012
Bit of a slog up the steep side of the north ridge to get to the summit.signyred12/02/2012

We finished the last of our water here - and were getting tired from the heat. The rest and retrospective view back to the Mamores was welcomed. The descend was brutal and thirsty - but once in the forest we were in shade and soon back in the tent for a rest.ChinnockC03/06/2010
