This summit is listed in Munro Tops, Munros for beginners, CUMC Ticklist hill lists.This summit has been climbed in 406 logbooks.
A slightly longer approach than its neighbour, Corrie an t-Sneachda, makes this corrie a lot quieter.
Some excellent, reliable winter climbing - the steeper nature of this corrie yields some excellent technical mixed climbing and also very good rock climbing.
Be very aware of snow conditions in Corrie an Lochain. The 'Great Slab' is a notorious avalanche black spot, and should be avoided at all costs should avalanche conditions prevail i.e. during/after heavy snow or thaw.
