Ben More dominates Crainlarich, it's near neighbour Stob Binnein is often regarded as its twin, but this more retiring summit is actually the finer of the two peaks, a graceful cone above its supporting ridges. The route has very steep ascent and descent for most of the way. There are pathless sections with boggy ground and some dangerous terrain if the route is lost. Higher up, the ridges are broad with one avoidable scramble on Ben More.
