Start from the base of the ridge just south of Guesachan and follow a series of buttresses close to the ridge crest to the minor summit of Meall a' Choire Chruinn. Continue on down to a shallow col and then up to the summit of Sgurr Ghiubhsachain. The route can be made as easy or hard as you want with variations from 1 to VDiff.

For a full day out complete the circuit over Sgorr Craobh a' Chaorainn which offers more entertainment on its summit crags.
