This Scottish Highlands route is for experienced mountain climbers who do not have a fear of heights or rock scrambles. Much of this route is a narrow mountain path.

A pleasant walk if you take a less direct approach to the summit of Carn Mor Dearg along the ridge. The steep climbs up from the valley as you get closer to the CIC hut are decidedly unpleasant- they’re a bit better in winter conditions.

The arête makes the day and is great fun all year round.
