Solo. Low cloud with both continual drizzle and wind. Soaked. Views to either side of the ridge from the Bealach. Decided to continue over Am Bathaich but did not go onto the subsidiary tops of Sgurr Thionail or Sgurr a' Mhaoraich Beagalexmaclennan30/06/2012

Parked at the roadside to NW of Loch Coire Shubh. I climbed up to Sgùrr a Mhaoraich Beag, surprised to find there was a path for most of the way. Continued to the summit of Sgùrr a Mhaoraich. I went northwards over quite complex terrain. It was a bit misty. Reached the Corbett top of Sgùrr Thionail. Returned southwards for a bit and then crossed a corrie floor and climbed up to the 892m top of Am-Bàthaich. This top, which is the only top of Am-Bàthaich to have a height marked on the OS 1:50,000 map, is not the highest point of Am-Bàthaich. This is further along the summit ridge in a direction WSW. I followed the ridge to the highest point. I could see clearly that this was the highest point. I continued to the col between Sgùrr a Mhaoraich and Sgùrr a Mhaoraich Beag and eventually found my ascent route and followed it back to the car.pwbellarby09/08/2003
