Date: Saturday 6th March 2004
Winter 2004 was rather benign all told, the first weekend in March saw continued patchy snow conditions.
We revisited Stob Ghabhar and Stob a Choire Odhair, a pair we’d been up the year before.
Turning at the green hut, we were on the bog standard SMC route for Stob a Choire Odhair and Stob Ghabhar. Although we’ve been back up Stob Ghabhar by a few other routes this was the last time we visited the smaller munro….need to rectify that.
It clouded up a little as we summited the first munro, so we didn’t hang around too long, heading west for Stob Ghabhar.
It’s an easy wander from Stob a Choire Odhair down to the bealach under Stob Ghabhar, then continuing up from the bealach to curl above Coirein Lochain and ascend onto the Aonach Eagach of Stob Ghabhar.
A last 100 or so metres has you at the summit – a munro with a cracking view.
A break at the top to refuel and enjoy the view and then it was back down the hill – we descended via the standard “waterfall route”.
We were fairly pleased with ourselves I remember. Nothing too dramatic but a rather nice bit of late winter walking.
