|Agreed. Ben Mac Dui is remote, so not always a day trip proposition, hence fewer posts.|

|Come on! Let's give the guy a chance!|
It's obvious he just posted the mountain, and plans on improving it daily by adding pictures and more information.
The 2nd in Scotland deserves a page. But we are all hungry for more.

It's the number one mountaineering site!
The page looks much better now. Good!
Put up a signature photo and the page will look much nicer.

|Pretty nice page. Google earth suggests -3.67 longitude rather than your -3.65. I have not checked on Streetmaps UK.|
|Posted Aug 30, 2005 2:34 pm|
|I'll meet you half way, 3.66.|

|Thanks, it's a great site. The first mountain I looked for was Ben Mac Dui, but it wasn't there, so I put it up. I will add my own photos as soon as I scan them in.|

|Good page - nice to see this mountain finally on SP!|

|Yes, it was one of the first mountains I searched for on SP and was surprised it wasn't there. Will continue to make it better!|

|Nice page Bermo. I'm a bit confused about the Getting There section however. It might just be me, but I can't make sense of your text. You seem to say that on leaving the ski centre the corrie in front of you is Sneachda, and that you climb its west-bounding ridge to get onto the plateau above the Lairig Ghru. That seems to shrink the mountain a bit. Really there are three corries, with a ridge bounding the west side of each in turn. From left-to-right looking from Coire Cas car park they are: Coire Cas (the ski pistes), bounded on the west by Fiacaill a'Choire Chais ridge. Then you've got Coire an t-Sneachda, bounded to the west by the Fiacaill Ridge: this is a summer grade 1 scramble, or a winter grade I/II climb, so I'm assuming it's not the ridge you're referring to. Last in line is Coire an Lochain, with a broader ridge to its west, up which goes a clear summer path that meets the rim of the Lairig Ghru and then hot-foots it straight towards Macdui. Is this the ridge you're talking about? That seems most likely from your route description. If so, I reckon you need to be a bit clearer about it: it's a big corrie system which I guess could look like one thing at a glance from a distance, but up close the three corries are very distinctly separate from each other...|

|I can't disagree with you. I will update this page after I review the map. Thanks for the info.|
