The Mamores

Ivor, Nettle and I spent today in The Mamores taking in some of their remaining Munros. We started from Glen Nevis and went up Mullach nan Coirean via it’s long and pleasant North-East Ridge. After taking in it’s South-East Top we then headed over Stob Ban, Stob Coire a’Mhail and The Devils Ridge to Sgurr a’Mhaim before dropping down it’s North-East Ridge to return to Glen Nevis.

The wind was a strong South-Westerly and mostly at our backs although care was required on exposed ground and particularly on The Devil’s Ridge. The forecast was for snow and sleet at height, but we only experienced some hail and a little sleet, but plenty of rain particularly later in the day, and we didn’t need axes or crampons. Not the most pleasant of conditions, but good to be out on the excellent ridges of The Mamores.
