......without a rope?
Is An Teallach possible without a rope?
I would want to do the whole traverse but I am not skilled or experienced with a rope at all (and don't particularly want to be).
An Teallach can be climbed without a rope. There are several obvious routes round any problem sections.
Suggest doing route clockwise, then pass any difficult bits on the left hand side, unless you're a purist: the route along the crest could be interesting...
It's one of the best ridges going, so save for a good day and enjoy it!

Slithery. Lovely word
I shall save it for a good day, maybe August but I need to get fit again first.
If you want to do the scrambling, definitely best to do it clockwise ie. on the up - might be a tad optimistic to scramble down there. Beautiful mountain and ridge walk and you can easily skirt all the tricky bits if you want.
If you are in a group with two cars you can start from Corrie Hallie and finish at Dundonnell Hotel and save yourself a couple of relatively dull miles.
Look at the pic, 2nd one down:
It is now my desktop wallpaper at work.
I get all excited just looking at it.
Sad, isn't it?
I agree it is best to do it clockwise (South to North), though if you are going to skirt around the scramble bits it seems a waste of what could be on one of the best scrambling experiences of your life, like going to the barrier reef and not snorkeling
