Sgurr a Ghreadaidh is normally climbed in conjunction with Sgurr a Mhadaidh to the north. The two Munros lie very close to each other on the main Cuillin ridge separated by a high col known as "The Door". The Munro has 2 summits separated by a small but incredibly sharp ridge connecting the two. This offers some superb scrambling opportunities and should only be attempted if you are confident. To the south of the summit a ridge drops down to a col at Sgurr Thermaid before connecting to neighbouring Munro Sgurr na Banachdich. Again this ridge offers much scrambling opportunities and is a superb crossing.
The usual ascent route for Sgurr a Ghreadaidh is from the west at Glen Brittle. A deep corrie Corie a' Ghreadaidh bites deep into the western face of the ridge between Sgurr a Ghreadaidh and Sgurr a Mhadaidh. A path pulls up the steep back headwall to reach “The Door" between the 2 Munros on the main Cuillin Ridge.
Normally these 2 Munros are climbed together and form a fantastic day out but there is loads of opportunity to extend you day by taking in more Munros on the Cuillin Ridge. This will depend on how fit you are and conditions etc.
Views are to be expected, superb in all directions particularly south east looking down the entire length of the magical Loch Coruisk. Another fantastic Cuillin Munro on offer here enjoy!
