Detailed route description and map

Ben Hope from Strathmore

Other routes and challenges

The obvious alternative is the very steep and challenging north / northeast ridge, which leads up the foot of Loch na Seilg. Much of this offers extremely airy but reasonably straightforward scrambling; there is a 'bad step' (a rock-climb if done directly) near the top which can be avoided to the left (or east) side via a stony gully.
