Climbed solo. Cycle from Glen Affric Hostel to Allt Coire Ghaidheil bridge. Stalkers path to Bealach Coire Ghaidheil. Rugged but straightforward ridge walk over An Socach N top, An Socach, An Socach W top, Stob Coire na Cloiche, Stob Coire nan Dearcag, Sgurr nan Ceathreamhnan E top to Sgurr nan Ceathreamhnan main summit. The latter is a superlative mountain - vast, complex, remote and with a nice pointy peak! Returned to Bealach Coire na Cloiche, and thence down fine stalkers path to the hostel. Weather was fine with morning mist clearing to give a fine afternoon with far-ranging views from all summits. Caught in a heavy shower on descent around 6pm. Time ~ 8 hours.jamessteel10020/08/2016

Second and highest of the day. Massive pyramidal peak with top now in cloud. Reached summit at 1710 hours. Walking with Maggie but able to see Reeds x 3 for long spells on other parts of the long ridge. Gave excellent perspective on the massive scale of these very big hills.dave neilson01/06/2014

With E, Al & Neilsons. From Glen Affric. Great ridge. Sair feet, so didn't do Mullach na DheiragainNorman Reid01/06/2014
3rd of 3, solo. After only a brief stop on MnD it was back along to collect pack and then cracking climb up ridge to summit. Think I was 2 hours from MnD and it is a fair distance! Views and weather just epic, hardly anyone on hill and just an excellent day. But you're still a long way from home, couple of ups and downs before path back to hostel and then another hour for the cycle out. 50k (30k on bike), ~1850m, ~13hrs. Absolute epic!bowzi25/08/2013

From Strawberry Cottage with a friend. Having ascended Stob Coire na Cloiche we followed the ridge over Stob Coire nan Dearcag (was a Munro top), point 970m (was a Munro top 1921-1969) to the summit of Sgùrr nan Ceathreamhnan. It was very misty along the ridge. We descended over Beinn-an t-Socaich.pwbellarby25/10/2006
