    Tranter Round

    Planning on doing this mid may.

    Just a few questions is there any real reason to go way rather than the other? I was going to do the Ben first and finish on the mamores just incase there's bad weather at the end and you have nav issues when knackered. But then thought about getting the scrambling on the mamores out of the way first?

    What's the best route from Stob Ban (grey corries) through to those 2 outliers on the mamores?

    When I ran the grey corries last summer we dropped straight down into the valley back at the col between Stob Ban and the main grey corries ridge and then back to glen nevis. Is it better to head down to the valley on the L? R? or straight down the ridge and down the nose, so as straight a line as possible between the 2 ridges?

    Can't give you any help on the route as it's been a long time since I've been up there but the proper way to do it is with the Ben last, a befitting crescendo

    Yeah, the mamores finish with a bit of a wimper, nice enough grassy ridges I think, but I did it in horrendous wind and rain.
