Stob Ban is one of the most distinctive peaks in the Mamore range due to its impressive conical shape and quartzite slabs which make its summit glisten in the sun, often being mistaken for snow. Stob Ban is most commonly climbed in conjunction with Mullach Nan Coirean to the west via a long connecting winding ridge. One of the most impressive features of Stob Ban is its NE face. Its craggy formation extends for 400m giving some fantastic rock climbing opportunities.
Stob Ban is connected by 3 ridges. As mentioned its western ridge follows the rim of several corries to the Munro Mullach Nan Coirean. Its eastern ridge connects to a former Munro Sgor an Iubhair and the rest of the Mamore range. The north ridge leads steeply back to Glen Nevis.
All the Munros in the Mamores possess a brilliant character and Stob Ban is defiantly included in this list, this really is one of Scotland’s better Munros.
