stunning mountain, best of the Arrochar Alps by far. It is a real shame it is not a Munro. Shame about the weather which was poor to say the least. it happens every time I go to Arrochar.

Should have signed this the day I wrote the SP-Page...! Doh.
Its a great summit to do and although smaller than the other Arrochar's it has to be the most shapely.
It was a dam cold day at -6 degrees C. But the sun was out and that soon warmed you up when out in it.

A mountain with three interesting summits, even in the mist. The South Peak was never going to be scaled by such a lamentable scrambler as me. The Central Peak looked much easier but given the damp and windy conditions I gave it a miss.

Zapped by lightning on the centre peak once. Can't hold it against the hill though.

Despite periods of sunshine the day we went up, recent weather had rendered the technical climbing pretty dang greasy. Still a fine day in the hills on a peak I'd long wanted to climb.

Hiked the north summit, scrambled the central, and downclimbed a bit short of the south summit when it started snowing (Russell and I didn't fancy the unroped downclimb with a lot of build up.)

Beautiful, atmospheric hill.

Wow what a great day we had. Nigel and I drove up from the lake District where we were on holiday. We wanted some snow. We were greated by an alpine peak, and had a great time climbing. On the final slope up between the two rocky tops we were greated by a large hare, who poped up from the snow and ran up to the top, turning as if to laugh at our slow progress.We then traversed to Ben Ime and were greated with a blizzard and high winds....................great!
The date is an estimate.

Nice days climb with a little scrambling at the final stages. Brilliant views from the summit. Back again in May 2008 on a fantastic day. Climbed onto the (true) summit rock this time round.
