I had a good look at this rock while the others in the party were summiting. After passing the boulder that blocks the way to the arete, the final pitch will be airy.richtea504017/09/2015
NOT SUMMITTED - note for info: NW ridge ascent is blocked by a 2m rock wall at about VS. This end of Dun seems more or less puffin-free so the Ranger should have no reason for refusal ... hopefully... The name An Fhaing surely belongs to this summit - seems on large scale mapping to refer to the rocky promontory running S from the tower, but on the old Mathieson map the name belongs to the summit and the spot height appears to be 405ft (123m). The 110+ summit (P28ish) to its SW is clearly A'Bhi on large scale mapping c/o Geograph.RHW24/11/2013
Managed to land on Dun with the NT Scotland working party and climb to the summit ridge but can't remember if we ever got on to any of the real tops. Looking at the photo it seems highly improbable that we submitted this one!!signyred16/08/1966
