Round of Stob a’Choire Odhair, Stob Ghabhar and it’s tops, from Victoria Bridge. No dramas this time. 40 years ago almost to the day I climbed these Munros the first time. Climb up to and along Aonach Eagach was fun.douglas_easton19/05/2024
Staying at the OMC Cottage, I did Stob a' Choire Odhair (945m) & Stob Ghabhar (1090m) today with Dave Morgan. Two munros bringing my total to 198 out of 282 now. We started in darkness, around 07:45, when the car dashboard said it was -9C. We walked out in darkness with headtorches on, arriving back at the car for 17:50, a really big day. The inversion was awesomechillyman802/12/2023
Fine day out, some sun. WarmCapt Malbec18/06/2023
A long 25 mile walk based around the two munros Stob a' Choire Odhair and Stob Ghabhar. I detoured to Beinn Toaig going up, visited Aonach Eagach on route and then had a walk around Sron nan Giubhas, Stob Ghabhar North Top, Aonach Mor, Creag a' Bhealaich, Sron a' Ghearrain and Stob a' Bhruaich Leith and then detoured to visit Meall an Araich on the way down, walking out via Clashgour Farm and down the valley. Every summit had completely different views and was worth visiting in it's own right, a very enjoyable day on the mountains. Notes: Climbed up more steeply from Beinn Toaig. Great views from the summit. /Dmeltdiceburg17/06/2023

Walked from Victoria Bridge up Stob a'Choire Odhair on a dry but grey day. Quite warm and windless. Ideal walking weather. Followed that up with an ascent of Stob Ghabhar and then back down via the waterfall. The route up Stob Ghabhar from Coirean Lochain side seemed too steep, loose and crumbling for a safe descent.honey badger17/09/2017
