Stob a' Choire Odhair and Stob Ghabhar - descent

Stob a' Choire Odhair and Stob Ghabhar - descent


Postby nikcster » Thu Sep 03, 2020 5:36 pm

Hey folks - I'm planning on doing these two at the weekend, and the reports I've read make much of the last bit of descent beside the waterfalls being really steep. I don't mind that as such, but I wondered if it's 'knee-wrecking' steep or your actual 'risky' steep? I'm asking as I'll be alone and I try to avoid the riskier bits under those circumstances!

Here's the WH route description: https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/argyll/stob-ghabhar.shtml

Thanks!

It's fine. There's a steep eroded bit if you cross right at the waterfall but it's nothing major and can be avoided by crossing further down if needed.

You can also descend down the south ridge of Sron a'Ghearrain and pick up the path to Clashgour.
