Other routes and challenges

The hill could be climbed on its own from Glen Nevis as described, but returning the same way for a short day.

The classic epic challenge for the hyper-fit is to traverse the whole Mamores ridge in a day - a major undertaking. The route can include up to 10 Munros, and An Gearanach is included by a detour along the airy An Garbhanach arete.
