| Elevation:||2700 ft / 822 m|
Ascent Trip ReportApproached from Beinn Fhada NE Top from which this summit is not visible hidden some way beyond 910m contour ring. Reached 8th and final peak of the day at 19:15
No feature according to hill-bagging. For me it is a toss up between small cairn and rib of rock.
Extremely difficult descent from here down to the Lost Valley reached path just as it turned dark at about 21:00. But even that was not straight forward by head torch crossing Allt Coire Gabhail, picking up path on other side and navigating round boulders the size of a house.
Very pleased to cross the River Coe and find steps on other side steps up to path back to car park reaching van tired and battered at 22:20.
