TGOC 2018. Ascended all 3 west Glen Roy hills en route to Luib Chonnal bothyalexmaclennan14/05/2018
After Leana Mhor. Descended steeply east above Coire nan Eun to valley.davidpettit8404/06/2017
A great walk from Glen Gloy, along and above the Fintaig Water. This walk is exactly as shown on the map. Thereís a short track to start you off, and then itís just you and the hill. Absolutely no paths, no ATV tracks, no hydro schemes, no wind turbines. Corbett-bagging as it used to be. Wild, woolly and very beautiful. Poor weather, with heavy rain, wind and snow (cold enough for the Buffalo mitts), but the reward was a stunning view from the summit, including a rainbow framing the view north, and sun bursting through the clouds smoking off the coire headwall. Fabulous.Gill12/04/2017
From bridge over Allt nan Eun, steep pathless up and down.rhalstead04/07/2015
From car park at NN 297 853 up very steep slopes to Leana Mhor and then onto Beinn Iauruinn. Mist and then torrential rain. Other than the parallel roads, not the most memorable of hills.benalder28422/06/2015

Later winter snow made it a tough ascent. Lack of hill fitness didn't help eithergman23/03/2008
From Glen Roy with Shaky on a sunny day. Over Beinn a'Mhonicag first then dropping steeply N to the col before ascending the S slopes of Leana Mhor & then down its N ridge before finally climbing the SW slopes of Beinn Iaruinn. Good view & then back to the col before dropping E following the Allt a'Bhreac Achaidh to the bridge & then walking back down the glen.NotReallyABagger01/06/2007

With Jonathan Bellarby. From the road in Glen Roy up the hillside to the SW of Coire nan Eun, round the corrie rim to the summit of Beinn Iaruinn. We descended to the NE of the coire to end with a short walk along the road. The parallel roads are very prominent in this part of Glen Roy.pwbellarby03/10/1993
Ascended on an indifferent day because it was an unclimbed Corbett, following the route in the SMC Guidebook.JohnW23/07/1991
