Sgurr Dubh Mor, Sgurr Alasdair & Sgurr MhicChoinnich

Starting from Glen Brittle campsite this 360 Route takes the right hand fork on the path below Sron na Ciche round into Coir a’ Ghrunnda. The route then climbs Bealach a’ Gharbh-choire and skirts around the right hand side of Casteal a’ Garbh-choire. From here head over to a diagonal scree ramp to the right of Sgurr Dubh na da Bheinn pointing towards Sgurr Dubh Mor. Climb the ramp then drop down to the right into a scree and rock filled gully, follow this gully up to the crest then branch of to the right up  Sgurr Dubh Mor. Return along the left hand side of Sgurr Dubh na da Bheinn pinnacles then take a slanted ramp to the right avoiding the summit. Descend along the ridge north west until it starts to climb again. There is now a choice of two routes. Either start the climb up the ridge, this will lead to the TD gap. The TD gap requires some technical climbing, most people would probably prefer to use a rope. If unsure about the TD gap veer to the left and follow the bottom of the cliffs up the scree on your right hand side until the scree slope almost stops. Look out for quite a distinctive well worn corner on the rock to the right and take this, scramble the clearest route to the top of Sgurr Alasdair. Descend the east ridge of Sgurr Alasdair, the diversion taken now joins back up with the route from the TD gap. Climb the south face of Sgurr Thearlaich then descend the wide ridge until it starts getting very rough. Look out to the right hand side for a path that will lead down to the bealach of King’s Chimney. It is possible to keep on following the ridge then either down climb or abseil  into the bealach. Progression along the route from here requires either a climb up King’s Chimney or there is route along Collie’s Ledge to the left hand side avoiding the climb. If using Collies Ledge you will have to double back up the main ridge to summit Sgurr MhicChoinnich. From here the route heads north west along the Coireachan Ruadha Crags until almost the start of the climb up Sgurr Dearg. Looking to the right there is an obvious scree chute heading down into Coire Lagan, follow this down then the path out back to the campsite.
