Two days later than planned, after bad weather. 10 degrees, increasingly sunny, strong ESE wind. From Glen Nevis car park with Jill via Steall Ruin and path by burn. Jill not feeling well so turned back. Steep climbing on grass and heather covered in soft, wet snow gradually becoming deep enough to kick steps. Glorious on ridge in wind and sun, snack, jacket on, admired the view, on to Stob Coire Bhealach.Wycombe Wanderer05/04/2019

With a friend. We left one vehicle at the car park of the Aonach Mòr gondola system and drove to the top of Glen Nevis in another. We walked up Upper Glen Nevis and climbed steeply up to the summit of Sgùrr a' Bhuic. We continued to Stob Coire Bhealaich, Aonach Beag and Aonach Mòr. Here we separated, my friend descending northwards. I descended with a little difficulty down snow slopes to the east and to Stob an Cul-Choire, Stob Coire an Fhir Dhuibh and Tom na Sròine. I descended westwards and contoured round Aonach an Nid to the vicinity of the top station of the gondola system. I went up to the summit of Sgùrr Finniosgaig. I descended on the mountain bike trail and reached the car park about 21:00.pwbellarby13/05/2006

With: hb; We had intended to do the Grey Corries but did Aonach Beag instead. From Steall up WSW ridge of Sg a'Bhuic then Stob Coire Bhealaich on to Aonach Beag. Descent down SW ridge back to Steall.Ian Baines24/09/1986
Polldubh- Sgurr a'Bhuic- Aonach Beag- Aonach Mor- NW ridge- Lochy Bridge. Good to revisit the Steall Gorge which we'd hurried coming off the Mamores. Walking up alongside the burn to the W ridge of Sgurr a'Bhuic was good, lots of rock pools then curving quartzite rock walls high on Sgurr a'Bhuic. A very pleasant way onto the Aonachs.
