Grey Corries and Loch Treig munros
Over the last 3 days i have been out on the Grey Corries munros and the 4 munros either side of Loch Treig.
On Friday we tackled the Grey Corries ridge in a long day taking 4 munros along the way.
We made swift progress into Corriehoile bothy and then ascended the outlier of Stob Ban before gaining the main ridge. The weather was kind and we got good views for most of the day. After the river crossing by the dam we had the final 4km back to the cars, finishing the day in 9 hours.
On Saturday we went up the 2 munros to the west of Loch Treig. It was a very steep and boggy lower section up the nose, but once on the high ridge we got dryer ground and a great view of our peaks. The team made swift work of both munros, starting our ascent just after lunch. The ground hadn’t changed by the time we descended and were all glad to reach the main track.
Today we tackled the 2 munros to the east of Loch Treig on the final day. It was a ‘heavy heather day‘ with a tough boggy and heather approach that felt more like walking through snow in the winter. Once we gained the broken ridge the going was easier and we got amazing views down Loch Treig to the Mamores and Glencoe.
We made a swift ascent of the grassy slope to the summit of our last and 8th munro of the 3 days. From there it was a grassy boggy descent back to the cars.
One of the fittest teams ive had in the hills and some of the best views on these peaks for me with good weather throughout.
