Thanks for your comments on winter climbs-any pix of Liathach or vistas from it would be a welcome addition.
I take it that the winter traverse of Liathach is similar to that of Aonach Eagach and March is more fun because of longer days?
No pics on my computer I'm afraid, though I'll buy a scanner and change that soon. Yes, I reckon March is more fun due to longer days. But it all depends on some pretty unreliable weather and winter climbing conditions, so who can say for sure?
As I recall, when we drove into Glen Torridon from the East (July 2003) we passed a house by a bridge where there was an up to date mountain weather forecast up on a board. This proved to be accurate when we did the climb that day.
I wouldn't know if this is permanent, but it was certainly useful to us as we were touring and didn't have TV or internet access at the time.
It's worth mentioning that there are several books dedicated to the Munros and Munro bagging. These are particularly useful for the tourist who wishes to climb but doesn't really know where to go. I used the book by Cameron McNeish, but there are others as well, mostly just titled: The Munros.
Oh, by the way, I think you wrote Stuc a Choire Dhuig Bhig when you meant Spidean a Choire Leith in the text of the Overview section, and the pinnacles are "Am Fasarinen", as opposed to Am Farsinen.
These names are crazy.
For experienced climbers, the traverse of the Northern Pinnacles of Mullach an Rathain, followed by the main crest over the Fasarinen Pinnacles, is one of the best easy winter mountaineering routes in Scotland. Officially it gets Scottish grade II, though difficulties depend on the build-up of snow and ice (when don't they?), and under tough conditions some bits might feel a touch hard for the grade. Technical tools and a rope would come in handy. This is a long trip in the short daylight hours of winter, and the descent is no fun in the dark.
The tiered sandstone flanks of this mountain offer some of the best icefall climbing in the country - sometimes. 200m grade V routes like Salmon Leap and Test Department are big ticks, and rarely climbed compared to the stuff on Ben Nevis, say. Nearby Beinn Eighe offers plenty more of the same, plus some wicked summer rock.
