LUUHC Good skies, clear day, slight chill, frost on topsCallumS06/11/2017
All three tops starting with SE ridge of S Peak, over the top and abseil down the 'normal' route. would not have fancied climbing down. Rock a bit wet though weather fine for our afternoon start.dickscroop21/09/2017
Took a good look at this one after descending the path to its saddle from the main top. It looks clear enough where the easiest route is, but must be a grade 2/3 scramble and I didn't fancy it as the rock was wet, there was no-one around, and I would have had to descend the same way I came up. Maybe next time...Mark Jackson20/08/2017
C/W round of an t sron, cobbler south peak, a good scramble to the top of this, the cobbler, the cobbler north peak, beinn narnain, creag tharsuinn, a chrois west top, A, Chrois,robertphillips27/04/2017
Scrambled up and down from the col. Subsequently saw it's graded diff in IainT's guidebook - sometimes ignorance is bliss. The fiddly bit and the exposed bit don't coincide so it doesn't feel as hard as that.mae28/05/2016
SUMMIT NOT ATTEMPTED. The path is 30 very steep metres below this summit. The south peak is OK for genuine climbers but it's much harder than the Cobbler main summit tower. If you don't remember visiting the south summit, you definitely didn't.Pete R19/09/2015
