The Grey Corries

Date: 13/07/2001
Height: 2500m
Distance: 19 miles
Grid: NN24007250 (Stob Coire an Laoigh), NN26207390 (Stob Choire Claurigh), NN26607240 (Stob Ban), NN22707140 (Sgurr Choinnich Mor), NN19307300 (Aonach Mor), NN19607150 (Aonach Beag)
Companions: Dougie
Weather: Cloudy but dry most of the day

From the Polldubh car park we followed the path by the river to the bridge at Steall ruin and then followed the river North wards up to the bealach and on up from there.

We left our rucksacks when we reached the ridge and headed for the top of Aonach Mor. Then turned back, headed back to pick up the rucksacks and onwards along the ridge to the very rocky summit.

We continued over and on to Stob Coire Bhealaich – this was very rocky and took some considerable time to descend. From here we continued on the rocky path over Sgurr Choinnich Beag and on to the summit of Sgurr Choinnich Mor.

From this munro we headed along the ridge to the summit of Stob Coire an Laoigh then a long way down to the bealach and lochan and back up to Stob Ban the final munro of the day.

This was a very long (10.5 hours), strenuous and tiring day taking in 6 munros. We came of Stob Ban and headed to the hut / bothy at MMMMMMMM for an overnight stop. We had also planned to take in the Mamores on the second day but decided it was too much, so just walked out along the base of the glen back to the end of Glen Nevis.

Excellent trip.
