Monadh Mor is a vast plateau in the very heart of the wild Cairngorms. Its ascent - usually combined with Beinn Bhrotain - requires a great deal of effort, whether approached across the vast plateaux from Glen Feshie or via the more obvious route past White Bridge and the Linn of Dee, or up Glen Geusachan.
Altitude: 1113 metres

Other routes and challenges
The obvious alternative to the route given above is to start from the Linn of Dee to White Bridge and then make the ascent from Glen Dee, taking in Beinn Bhrotain first. This route could include Carn Clioch-mhuillin, which was originally a Munro and was intended by Sir Hugh to be his final ascent. After Monadh Mor, the descent could be made down the boggy Glen Geusachan.
The standard ascents are epic enough for most. However, from Monadh Mor you could head up the SW ridge of Sgor an Lochan Uaine to link with that range.
