Must go back and do the icefall start one day.
NB There is no 'e' in Munro!
A great article, particually the tips about runners and belays. The 'old' description of it being a near solo due to the lack of protection has put many folk off doing one of the best lines in the area.
One question though, did you ever buy the beers for the person who gave you the Skyscrapper buttess beta?

When the snow line is above about 450m (not unusual) - the walk in is one of the shortest in the north west, with a good path all the way to Loch a' Mhadaidh and as the article mentions only 500m to gain. You can even see the face from the road, weather permitting - so it's never felt very remote to me.
I'm expecting to see a few more folk this season up Sgurr Mor after these tempting photos - I'll be the one weaselling away up Easter Gully cos the top pitch of Resurrection puts me off.
Nice article. I thought the walk-in was bloody awful!
