Aye the lift is a must GillC,no much difference in what end you start isuppose.It,s a gentle walk in from the cluanie end whereas the west end would be steeper but the path is quite clear.Easiest bail out if the weather is bad would be just west of maol chinn dearg.Allow yourself plenty time and go for itGillC wrote:Smashing report and pics...My friend and I are doing the 5 sisters in June, But im thinking about doing the South Ridge in Sept on my own,,,all the reports do it from E to W but the Cluanie Inn offered to drive me to the other end so that I would be walking W to E, Any thoughts on that,,I dont have my transport or accom sorted yet so open to suggestions lol...

You will definately have tell the young lad to stop fooling about with his acrobatics, hillwalking is a very serious business

Cheers Gavin and blanchie,must stop this alcohol nonsense.Cheers soulminer,thought i was doing all right at weekend till the young fella started the gymnastics Cheers polly ,good company makes all the differencepollyh33 wrote:Epic Pigeon!!!
