2nd ascent , followed by Carn Dearg SE Top and onto Carn Macoul which though it doesn't have any status it gave fine views of my previous route and of the falls above Loch Dubh. As the weather was now at its best for the day I decided to return via the Graham Creag Liath.Peterb02/11/2016

Started wet ++ but nicer later on. Climbed with Maggie and Roy (and initially Liz) as part of Trisha's last munro party. 30 - 35 walkers made it to the top I'd guess.dave neilson21/05/2016
Walked up Glen Banchor to Dalballoch (no problem crossing the river) then followed deer tracks on the western flank of Carn Macoul which kept us out of the wet valley bottom. From the col 639009 we enjoyed the fine scenery and weather to the summit perched on top of a cliff. Returned to the col but descended snow slopes east where we saw lots of mountain hares. A fine day out.mindlessflogger30/03/2016
