Stob Poite Coire Ardair forms part of a 3 Munro outing which is widely regarded as one of Scotland's best walks. The other Munros being Carn Liath and Creag Meagaidh. The hills form a ring around Coire Ardair with steep crags in all directions. Stob Poite Coire Ardair is separated from its famous neighbour Creag Meagaidh by a low col with steep slopes on other side known as "the window". This is the normal route of ascent.
There is a long summit ridge running NE following the northern rim of Coire Ardair leading to Carn Liath. The ridge is fairly flat with little technical difficulties but the south facing crags are best avoided. The south ridge as mentioned drops to "The Window" before a steep climb up to Creag Meagaidh via its E ridge. This part has several crags and a number of areas that require scrambling. The head wall of Coire Ardair is best stayed well away from unless you know what you are doing. This is especially true in winter conditions, where the area is prone to cornicing.
Stob Poite Coire Ardair is normally tackled from the SE where there is a large car park on the A86. The normal route of ascent starts from the head of Coire Ardair with a steep climb to "the window".
This Munro makes a fantastic winter climb as Coire Ardair is know to collect a fair amount of the white stuff but beware the area is prone to avalanches so check before you go.
