From Glen Brittle Memorial Hut, good track leads up into Coir' a' Ghrunnda, gets a bit scrambly but nothing difficult. Fourth hill on a linear route to Gars-bheinn. On to Sgurr a' Choire Bhig.jonglew01/10/2019

From Glenbrittle camp site, via moorland paths to foot of SW flank - not a route I wish to repeat. An initial slabs 'barrier' at the start of the SW flank was passed approximately centrally, then 2,000 feet of snow covered unstable boulders and scree, interspersed with slabs coated with water-ice. Lots of 'dead' ground above, meaning some route choices had to be reversed once what was in the dead ground was revealed. If there is an 'obvious' zig-zag scree path, I saw no signs of it. Route finding was not half so difficult coming back down, but care had to be taken to locate the passage back through the slabs barrier.Isbjorn Winter Round18/01/2019
