Famous mountain featured in challenging climb
Bookmark and Share
An ascent of one of Scotland's most iconic Munros has been featured as Walk of the Week in the Scotsman newspaper.

The buttresses of Buachaille Etive Mor are a famous site at the eastern end of Glencoe, but the 3,350 ft peak above them, Stob na Broige, can be reached via a steep ascent of Coire na Tulaich and this is described by the publication.

It also noted the summit was regarded as just one Munro before 1997, when the substantial re-ascent between Stob Dearg and Stob na Broige prompted the Scottish Mountaineering Council to confer this status on the latter peak as well.

Those planning to climb the mountain may make good use of a walking pole or two to deal with the steep ascents and descents.

Glencoe's Munros contain many challenges for walkers and climbers, such as the vertigo-inducing scramble on the Aonach Eagach between Meall Dearg and Sgorr nam Fiannaidh and the long haul to the top of the valley's highest mountain, the 3,772 ft Bidean nam Bian.
