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

Beinn Tharsuinn and Sgurr na Feartaig (Corbett) are two mountains of almost identical height sitting either side of Bealach Bhearnais and therefore can be climbed together. However, Beinn Tharsuinn is normally included in the route to Bidein a' Choire Sheasgaich (Munro) and Lurg Mhor (Munro).

Beinn Tharsuinn is a compact mountain of three ridges; NNE, SE and W with the summit lying close to the intersection of these ridges. The slopes are fairly steep, with scattered rock outcrops and crags, but the ascent from Bealach Bhearnais is not difficult and the ascent from Bealach an Sgoltaidh is steep but easy.

Hazards you may encounter on Beinn Tharsuinn [Monar] include
 Relatively Remote Mountain navigate with care.
 Steep slopes on or near ascent routes.

General Considerations
