Topic - Traverse of Sgorr a' Chaolais (Beinn a' Bheithir)?

Taurig - on 15 Mar 2012
I've been planning on taking some mates up Beinn a' Bheithir once the snow is gone and was originally thinking of doing the grade 1 ENE ridge of Sgorr Bhan. I had a look at a few photos of it though, and it looks like a good walk but a little straightforward in terms of scrambling.

Then I saw the Traverse of Sgorr a' Chaolais in Scrambles in Lochaber, and was wondering if anyone would recommend it as a way up these hills? The guidebook gives it two stars, then talks about a lot of vegetation,loose rock, and a couple of sketchy downclimbs, so I'm a little confused. Is it worth the walk in through the plantation maze and what is apparently a bog at the foot of the ridge?

Your thoughts are welcome.
