Our route takes us initially on a gentle climb to the western side of Loch Cruite where we then ascend a very steep ridge which requires some basic scrambling skills. Our goal is to emerge onto the ridge that leads to the southern side of Brandon Peak (840m) at Barr an Ghéarán. From here we descend in a southerly direction across An Géarán narrow ridge where a good head for heights is essential,before heading down the zig zag track to Mullach Bhéal,where we will have left some cars.
