Other routes and challenges
The only alternative route - and then only for those with scrambling ability and experience - is via the southwest ridge from the bealach between Sgurr Alasdair and Sgurr Sgumain. There is a mauvais pas on the ridge which must be avoided via a chimney situated to the right.
