Stob Ban is part of 4 Munros which make up the grey corries but it is the only one that lies off of the main SW - NE running ridge that connects the Munros. It is a fine conical summit topped in Quartzite which gives its name to the group. It is much smaller than its neighbours and is well hidden for this reason. You can however get good views of Stob Ban from Glen Nevis to the South where its quartzite tops makes it look great and many mistake this grey colouring for snow.
Stob Ban is connected to its neighbouring Munro Stob Choire Claurigh by a 800m bealach it’s a long climb up to Stob Choire Claurigh.
The most usual (and most accessible) way to climb Stob Ban is from the North at Spean Bridge with a long walk in via the Lairig Leacach to the bothy at the end of the glen. It’s a tough pull up to the summit. Stob Ban can be climbed on its own or as mentioned combined with the rest of the Grey Corries to make a fantastic day out!
