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.
Altitude
853 m (2798 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).

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

 Description
Creach Bheinn and its smaller neighbour Fuar Bheinn (Corbett) are the two highest tops on a horse-shoe ridge around Glen Glamadale.

Whilst it is possible to descend from the ridge at Maol Odhar at the head of the Glen, you will miss the views over Loch Linnhe seen from Meall nan Each, and this should be considered an emergency descent only.

Whilst there are many granite outcrops, particularly on the eastern slopes, no scrambling should be required in a circuit of the glen.

Hazards you may encounter on Creach Bheinn [Morven] include
 Crags on or near ascent routes.
 Crags near summit.
 
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.
