Spring Snow – Am Fasarinen, Liathach

Photo of spring snow on the Am Fasarinen pinnacles and second Munro of Liathach, Mullach an Rathain

The Am Fasarinen pinnacles make up the most tricky scrambling section of the Liathach main ridge and divide the mountain’s two Munros, Spidean a’ Choire Leith and Mullach an Rathain. In summer their traverse is a classic and highly recommended scrambling grade 2. In winter they are given a winter climbing grade in appropriate conditions. Most difficulties can be avoided but the most fun can be had taking most obstacles fairly directly. The ridge is airy but generally the scrambling moves don’t feel too exposed. Read a detailed route description in the SMC guide Highland Scrambles North. Meall Dearg is the lower top to the right of Mullach an Rathain to which it is joined by the Northern Pinnacles.
