I split the Strathfarrar 6 into 2 walks so no worries about being locked in the glen (or annoying the gatekeeper). From Allt Toll a Bhuic, via the S ridge of Creag Ghorm a'Bhealaich, contouring across onto the ridge between it and Sgurr a'Choire Ghlais from about 200 ft below the summit. Then followed lovely ridge walking and a finish on the splendid Sgurr na Muice. The Marilyn, Beinn na Muice looks really rough from there.pwheeler24/05/2010
Crampons came into their own today, hard upper layer so just walked on top of the snow very easy walking. Ridge brilliant, took loads of photos as blue sky day. Glad of snow goggles for glare. Sang most of the way to second munro.iandesbottes02/04/2010

Feb-Mar 1986 or 1987 Climbed this and its neighbour with Rom, starting from the W end. Had intended to do all 4, but we were terribly snow getting up onto the ridge, delayed by deep snow and then a very big cornice that we basically had to cut through from below. Met some guys who we'd seen at the start, who were travelling E > W, who said they'd been surprised by our slow progress when we saw them again on the ridge, and then when they realised what we had been contending with, they understood. Next time, I shall complete from the E end.spstrachanblank
