Cruach Ardrain Beinn a Chroin on left (Expand pics)
Foreign Stuff
Cra's a few miles out in the newsletter with his entrant for the multiple top Munro. Neither of the Ben Vorlichs qualify, only the Argyll one's got two tops and of these the north top's way lower. Cruach Ardrain has swapped the Munro from one top to the other recently, a move of about 100 metres. Beinn a Chroin moved rather more spectacularly almost a kilometre west. Carn an t-Sagairt Mor has two possible summits about 200 metres apart and nobody seems to have a firm opinion (or possibly nobody cares, it's a dull outpost of the Mounth which doesn't deserve its status anyway.) More controversially in the Lawers range, An Stuc and Meall Garbh are the same height and have now been made separate Munros. In the rather more purist Corbett list you're just told to climb two tops to get the one tick when this occurs. The best contender is Beinn a'Chaorainn with three tops which seem to swap at every resurvey. Beinn a'Chaorainn's tops are connected along a cliff edge which bends in between them. The cornice that forms along this is notorious for the number of people who've plummeted through when following a straight line rather than a curve - three in an hour once in 1995....
