An Socach lies to the south of Glen Ey. The summit ridge is curved and 3km long with tops at either end. The western top is the highest therefore the true Munro summit. The summit ridge arcs round a deep corrie with the only low level exit NNE of the summit. It is quite an impressive site. An Socach is best seen from Glen Ey where you can fully appreciate this impressive corrie. It is hidden from the east at the A93 by its neighbour Carn Aosda.
The summit ridge is normally attained via its E ridge and then on to the main summit by a long walk along the arced summit ridge. South of the ridge has a lot of scree and is best avoided. The usual approach is from a path at Baddoch Burn to the East starting out from the Ski Centre. This high altitude start makes it a rather easy climb over easy slopes. There are other routes that attack An Socach from the west which are infinitely more interesting but are much longer.
An Socach is perhaps the easiest Munro you can do in this region that still manages to avoid the scarred Glenshee ski centre and can offer you a little bit of solitude.
