I originally planned to tackle Stob Binnein as well but the fog came down on the summit of Ben More and with zero visibility I decide to leave that for another day
started at 9:oo am and was back at the car for 2:30pm
Hard going like everyone says but still an enjoyable dayout in the hills.

It certainly is a hard slog up that North face but looks like you found the path near the wall over to the right, makes it a bit easier, but only a bit. :)
