Other routes and challenges
The approach is epic from any direction (not to mention the steepness and ruggedness once the peak is reached). The easiest approach is that described above along the north side of Loch Quoich, but it can also be reached from Sourlies, itself a long walk from Inverie in Knoydart, or Strathan above Loch Arkaig.
