Detailed route description and map

Aonach Beag and Aonach Mòr from Glen Nevis

The Aonachs via the gondola

Other routes and challenges

Purists will prefer the route climbing the Aonachs entirely on foot from the road end in Glen Nevis. Less conscientious baggers won't mind riding the Nevis Range gondola up half the height of the mountains on their northern side.

Combining with Càrn Mòr Dearg and Ben Nevis would make for a truly epic expedition. The Lochaber Traverse adds in the Grey Corries as well - although the ground leading from the Sgùrr Chòinnich Beag bealach up to Stob Coire Bhealaich is very tricky.
