The forestry road from Hells Glen to the three stumps. A small cairn just before these marks a path up through the felled timber and on to open hillside above. First Cruach nam Mult's two tops then over to Stop Liath and back. There are some cliffs but these can be avoided by taking a SE descent from the Graham. Next over to Cruach nan Capull then finally Creag Dhubh. Returned back to the initial forestry road.summitter21/05/2024
From the pass via the three stumps.davidpettit8429/03/2024
By the three stumps route from Hell's Glen, visiting both tops and the intermediate ridge. Sweeping views from Loch Goil to Loch Fyne.Nick Down124/03/2024
Same route as others. The forest track leaves the brash at the fence corner, NN 1611 0624. Visited both the New and Old high points. Decided to go on to Cruach nan Capull to stretch the legs. Solo.Dangerous Dave14/03/2024
Route as per bolton. Met an 86-year-old bagger from Teeside on top who was following SMC route, but was unaware of, and descended as sprightly as the rest of us.willyross09/07/2023

From high point on Hell's Glen road, along forest track to 3 stumps and small cairn opposite, up remnants of logging track to deer fence and then uphill to summit.MichaelF01/04/2023
Solo. Up and down same way, followed burn directly next to fence, steep but easy. Rather uninteresting after doing Stob an Eas beforehand.Nick Canute19/03/2022
From 168074 in Hells Glen. SW to 158065 and just before the 3 stumps on the right there is a track of sorts that almost takes you out of the brash. Then a steep climb SE to the summit. Solo.bolton15/03/2022
As NotReallyABagger. The turn off the track is just before three stumps on the right.Pete R05/03/2022
The good route used by NotReallyABagger. Extra notes: go along the logging road past the area surrounded by a new fence, then past a stream and you'll see the harvester track crossing the ditch on tree trunks before the unfelled trees. Steeply up this and, at a fork, take the lower, older, rushy, right hand branch which goes right to the end of the felled area. No problems with brash, just a few twigs on the track. The grassy top beyond both summit candidates gives the best view.Gill29/05/2021
Repeat for new summit. Up steep grassy slopes from B839govanah14/10/2020

Third visit, along the fine but pathless ridge from Stob Liath. Stunning crisp dayColin Crawford29/11/2019
Route climbing tops either side of Hell's Glen. Stob an Eas, Stob an Eas N Top, Beinn an t-Seilich, the various tops of Sron Beinn an t-Seilich, back to road then Cruach nan Capull, Cruach nam Mult. Initially cloud over the tops but cleared over timeRobertP24/08/2019
With Smithy & a stinking cold for company. Bright sunny morning which was much better than forecast. Walked up the track from the high point on the road through Hell's Glen where there is plenty of space to park without getting in the way. As others have noted, the track now extends around the corrie & the logging operations have actually made this hill easier to get on to. At NN159064 where the tree line currently is, a rough logger's access track led through the detritus & round the top of the trees arriving at a couple of prominent grassy mounds about 0.5km NE of the col mentioned in the SMC guidebook. Turned L (SE) & plodded our way up the slope to the summit(s). A great view & worth the effort. Back by the same route for ice cream in Inverary.NotReallyABagger10/08/2019
From Hell's Glen NN 168 074 parking space. Large logger lorry driver give me a bit of a stare (logging at work but no warning signs up). Walked up main track for just under 1 mile. Place looked bleak to climb as hillside is all deforested. Found some easy going (sic) near tree line before the track u-turns. Hill a tough bugger type despite just over 2000ft. Cloud obscured views. Back the same way.Jhimmy15/02/2019
Track now continues round corrie, across stream to western slopes where logging activity is now taking place. No access problem to hill though - possible to cut up SE through trees from high point of track (approx. 158063)49pp08/01/2019

From top of Hells Glen as per SMC Guide, except that recent felling meant going through all the debris. another good little hill.IanHHill17/05/2018
From B839 high point. Forestry cleared from the track to the south, so left the track at 164070 and picked a horrible way through, emerged at about the 350m contour. Then steep grassy slopes, hard work on a humid day. Concur with others that the first summit is higher, did both. On return, picked a more easterly route down the grassy gully arriving at the felled area at about the 270m contour, then followed muddy tracks back to the main track, much better.Owen B15/05/2018

2nd visit for cruach nam mult, mullach coire a chuir nw top, mullach coire a chuir, cruach nan capull from top of hells glen road.robertphillips07/06/2017
From Hell's Glen. Lucky it was a Sunday. Forest harvesting in progress. Probably wouldn't have been allowed through if they had been working. Got a close up look at a tree harvester. Woul have loved to have a go with it, but the keys weren't in the ignition.ngthack07/05/2017
Hells glen start and finish. Lovely walk with Holly and Lilly on a sunny calm wintery day, 3 hoursalexmaclennan28/02/2017
After walking Stob an Eas went straight past car to walk up the other forestry track. Followed to its end then a cairn marked the path through the forest. A few trees down but still passable, muddy in parts. Again arrive at the clearing then up to summit. No views so straight down again. Back at car 10.45. Two good peaks claimed.

Cruach nam Mult NN 168056 S/F NN 167074 New Year's day walk, now 17 years since the last Munro. Cold day with very strong wind at sumit, quite surprising give totally still at car and high pressure. Below freezing at car, occasional light slow showers but very good visibility in northerly air flow. Checked pacing against track on map, if marked correctly still 120 for 100m. Careful navigation through wood requiired, path through forest only lasted a few hundred yards before becoming indistinct. No cairn on sumit so good visibility left no doubt as to where top is.John Young01/01/2017
From highpoint of Hell's Glen road. Forest road to end then eye-endangering very faint path upwards through trees. On to Cruach nan Capull.russell6115/05/2016

Used forest track from Hells Glen, then a bit of forest thrashing to gain open hill. Onwards to Cruach nan Capull.Martin R29/04/2014
From parking at bealach.New forest track for tree felling. Recommend follow to end, wind throw down the rides. At end of track path leads off up into trees,, easy enough to follow. Straight on at two small cairns, to emerge from canopy on upper edge of forest at 360m. Straightforward climb up to summit, over knolls. In mist visited each to ensure summit.nordicstar19/01/2014
