Ben More Assynt and Conival from Inchnadamph

Other routes and challenges

The south ridge of Ben More Assynt - out to the 960m top and beyond - provides a magnificent and at times airy approach with some scrambling on awkward tilted slabs. The start of the ridge, however, is extremely remote and inaccessible which ensures this route has never become popular.
