Description

This classic but very challenging route makes a circuit of the mountains surrounding Glen Sannox.

Ascending via a classic scramble up Cioch na h-Oighe, the route descends loose ground to the Saddle before an extremely steep climb up to the dramatic peak of Cìr Mhòr.

The route then crosses the granite tors of Caisteal Abhail before further scrambling leads down to the Witches' Step, which is bypassed before the final section of ridge and return across the moor.
