The 'hard bit' from the top of An Dorus is just one move on solid rock with good holds, mod/diff. Even easier on descent.steveroberts11/07/2024

Absolute brilliant day out weather route everything went to plan, Awesome!Kevthecat12/05/2023
With Dave Roeder. Parked at the Youth Hostel (10:05). Lovely day. Followed the path to An Dorus, finally up a steep gully. Tricky step up from the col. Better route starts a few metres down the E side; used on the return. Scramble to the summit. Great views. Finished 15:40.dbb12/05/2023

along ridge from Sgurr Thuilm, superb easy scramble with lots of options. Clear, light breeze, mild. small cairn on tiny summit area. lunchDenise 10/07/2021
A superb day of scrambling fun with Harrison, covering the In Pinn to Sgurr na BanachDaich, Sgurr a' Ghreadaidh and Sgurr a' Mhadaidh. Slightly warm, but the occasional breeze helped keep us cooler up on the ridge.mproudfoot26/06/2021
