Quick Facts
This is the height of the mountain above sea level. However, on the climb, it is the ascent that matters, i.e. the sum of all the uphill parts of the route.
909 m (2982 ft)

This is the standard notation used on Ordnance Survey Landranger maps.

Each reference consists of two letters identifying a 100,000 metre square block then three digits defining the Easting and finally the three digits defining the Northing with reference to the South West corner of the block.

NN166712 is the grid reference for the summit of Ben Nevis. Where you are given the map number ( For Ben Nevis = 41) it is acceptable to omit the two initial letters e.g. 166712. (Instructions on how to read the references are given on the OS maps).

Mountain names are usually in Gaelic, the native language of the Scottish Highlands, or have been derived from the old Scots and Norse languages. We give the most commonly accepted meaning, but accept that some of these are disputed.

A description of the characteristics of the mountain including any hazards of which you should be aware.

Streap lies on a long ridge that separates Glen Finnan from Gleann Dubh Lighe.

The ridge runs from Beinn an Tuim (810m) NNE over Meall an Uillt Chaoil (844m) and Stob Coire nan Cearc (887m) to Streap. The ridge then turns ESE to Streap Comhlaidh (898m) before continuing NNE to an unnamed top (567m). The slopes are moderately steep with rock outcrops and crags mainly at higher altitudes.

From Stob Coire nan Cearc (887m) to Streap there is considerable exposure on a narrow ridge. Streap can be ascended from either Glen Finnan or from Gleann Dubh Lighe.

Hazards you may encounter on Streap include
 Steep slopes on or near ascent routes.
 Crags on or near ascent routes.
 Crags near summit.
 Narrow Ridges, with exposure.
General Considerations
 Temperature decreases by 1degree C for every 100m of ascent.
 Wind usually increases with altitude.
 Visibility can change markedly with cloud level.
 River/Stream levels can increase markedly in one day.

Great route. Ascended from Dubh Lighe to Streap, lots of up and down along the ridge - 1100m of ascent in total for a 909m peak.The narrow ridge from Stob Coire nan Cearc to Streap is the best bit. Descended to Corryhully by the "grassy rake", this peters out 2/3 of the way down, the rest to the valley floor is on quite steep grass. Great walk, made better by using the bus and not having to return to the car at the start, so seeing both glens on either side.
