After passing the falls, you will begin your ascent up to the ridgeline. You will pass Am Bodach, Sgor an Iubhair, and Sgùrr a' Mhàim before descending back down to the road.

It’s a long day but worthwhile. A couple of narrow ridges that are a bit scary! Some big climbs ... took us 9 hours. Watch for abrupt changes in weather ...

Plan to get to the start early in the morning, will take you longer than expected. Bring lots of layers and I suggest hiking poles. Lose rocks. Wear proper hiking boots.
