Last day of my Knoydart trip, but the weather was still uncertain to be clear or not.
I had to conquer Sgurr Coire Choinnichean, but wondered which way to take.
Then I decided to go Ladhar Bhein first, then ridge walk to conquer there.

It took 1hr 5min to reach a Bridge to pass Allt Coire Torr an Asgaill via Gleann na Guisserein.
Then followed the path to Ladhar Bheinn.

Once reached the ridge, I could see the Sgurr Coire Choinnichean clearly... however, Ladhar Bheinn was under FOG.

Actually Ladhar Bheinn was my last Munros to complete my Munros bagging in y2014, and it was under thick fog with strong wind, so that I could not see anything.
Now I was able to see the view although foggy and cloudy, so I was happy !!!

Now, I had to return to my primary purpose.
I traversed towards to East to reach to devision, then moved to South ridge walk.
This ridge was also great view and line.

Mam Sridheg (500m) was the lowest point, then head up again towards to Sgurr Coire Choinnichean but grassy slope was a little hard to lift me up.

Finally I reached the summit... then sunny spill started.... too late !!!

Return route was easy hill down followed by path.

The weather looks OK to me! And that looks like an amazing ridge walk back along to the Corbett summit.

I like the idea of walking over a big Munro to get to a Corbett, maybe we should name these routes after you.

Have you tried Beinn Dearg Mhor via An Teallach or Ruadh-stac Beag via Spidean Coire nan Clach?

I enjoyed your report and photos, much appreciated.

Thank you very much for your comment. I looked for this route for long time whether it was possible to do or not.
It was fine route and very fun !!!
Regarding Beinn Dearg Mhor ... I made a day hike from Dundonnell with Beinn Dearg Bheag in y2016. It was great route, but hard to do within a day ( and it was hot day... 26degC ).
Regarding Ruadh-stac Beag ... I took other way around in y2014.

I have my own Blog for hill walking, but in Japanese, so not many people can read.
So, I now decided to join this member to show some of my interesting approach and photos... if I can manage.
Regards.
