An Ruadh-stac is a steep-sided Corbett, a near neighbour of the Munro Maol Chean-dearg. Though slightly lower, it is perhaps the finer of the two peaks and provides a more dramatic and challenging ascent.
Stalkers path for the approach. The ascent of An Ruadh-stac is very steep with some scree and simple scrambling on quartzite slabs which can be very slippery when wet.
Coulags on A890.
