Dear Friends

Today I intended to walk Beinn Ime 1011m but I only menaged to climb to the top of Beinn Narnain 926m. The weather changed for the worse and I have to abandon the climb. I took hard route at the start from a car park in Arrochar and did not realized the trail was so wet and in same places very dangerous. I came back down the mountain along The Cobbler route. It was more gentle. I met few climbers on the way and learned few "tricks of the trade". So I will approach Beinn Ime next time along The Cobbler route or maybe anybody knows other route? What about climbing Beinn Ime from the bottom of the Rest and Be Thankful ? Any sugestions?

Well done on Nairnan. I don't have any advice on which route to take to climb Beinn Ime, however I can 100% empathise with your experience. I went up same route to Nairnan yesteday but aborted before I got to the top because of the wind/rain - very scary -I think I may have taken a wrong turn as I seemed to be climbing up the left side. Climbing being the right word - at some points I was scrambling up 5-6ft rock face with big drops to the left (see my report 21st Aug). I don't usually let things beat me so I will probably go back up the same route (hopefully with a few other people) although I am tempted to use the Cobbler route for safety reasons! Anyway good luck with Ime whichever way you decide to climb it
