Other routes and challenges
The above route is the most popular and convenient; the hill could alternatively be combined with Aonach Buidhe - especially if a bike is taken as far as Carnach.
Approaches from other directions are extremely long and remote; one option would use stalkers' paths from Maol-buidhe bothy.
