Other routes and challenges
For those not attempting the whole 7 Munros ridge, the north ridge of Aonach Air Chrith makes a fine route in its own right. The upper section is a narrow arete with some easy scrambling.
All the finest features of the South Glen Shiel Ridge are on the northern side. The southern flank above lonely Glen Quoich has more uniform but steep slopes which deter an approach from this side.
