Route DescriptionThe route starts as you leave followinh a path south accross the bridge and over moorland towards the mountains northern flank. When the waters of Alt Dearg Beag are met and Nead na -lolaire is to the left take the path left (due south) towards coire Riabhach. Follow the cairns amongst the bolders as the pinnicle ridge looms over you to the right. Keeping this course you will eventualy see and then gain the ridge opening up a great vista.
Looking down the ridge to Sgurr Beag and Harta Corrie you again see some real Skye landscape, then panning round see the ridge in all its glory..........a great place to start.
Looking up the ridge there is only one way to go, pleasurable scrambling on great rock to the summit.
