About this event
Beyond Spean Bridge, driving north along the A82, the Munros of Meall na Teanga and Sron a' Choire Ghairbh form an imposing backdrop, rising steeply above Loch Lochy and the Great Glen Way. Our routes starts off on easy forest trails for 3-4km allowing us to warm up the legs gently. From here, we turn north and head up the excellent Cam Bealach path which we follow all the way through the valley of the Allt Glas Doire. From the head of the narrow pass we must decide which of the two Munros to tackle first. Sron a' Choire Ghairbh has a spectacular NE facing coire which can gather a vast amount of snow. I have seen colossal cornices form here before. Meall na Teanga boasts a steep north ridge which will almost certainly require ice axe and crampons. There are no difficulties per se but when the wind has been blowing from the north and the snow is hard, the steepness of the slope can create a sense of exposure. Conversely, when the snow is soft, there is sometimes the opportunity to enjoy a good bum-slide! Additional Information Maximum Group size is 6 and online booking is available on the following dates: Wednesday 21st December 22 All participants will require an ice axe and crampons (not micro-spikes).
