It is a good question. Unfortunately, I did from Sgurr Elide Mor summit to Loch Trieg on sight when I did my round, so I can't compare the two approaches. I took a line very similar to JK, and I found it frustratingly slow: tussocky and wet and definitely no path. I think a few contenders aim a bit further West, higher up the Abhainn Rath - maybe the going is a bit quicker there, even though it's further? If I ever look to do another round, I'd at least want to recce dropping down to the track and then up to Luibelt, it's possibly (for me) a bit quicker.

JK looks to have turned around a third of the way up Stob a Choire Mheadhoin and heading back down :-(
