Other routes and challenges
The Grey Corries is almost always done as a ridgewalk. An alternative start - adding a further Munro - is to ascend Stob Ban first and then head up the south ridge.
The epic challenge is the Lochaber Traverse which continues from the Grey Corries onto the Aonachs and eventually Ben Nevis - though the ground leading from the Sgurr Choinnich Beag bealach up to Stob Coire Bhealaich is very tricky.
