Started this route from ballsporan cottages at 7 o'clock with a bit of sunshine showing :) looks like it could turn out nice today :? the ascent of geal charn pretty slow in the deep snow,however once the top was reached it was easy going towards a'mharconaich,atleast until the clouds closed in,from near its summit it was a white out for the rest of the day until the descent from sgairneach mhor,which made for slow progress,had a look at the sow on the descent but it looked pretty steep,and with the thought of the walk back to the car and already burning legs i gave it a miss,so took only my 2nd pic of the day and headed for home.after 8 hrs of trudging though the deep snow the walk along the A9 was brutal :lol: enjoyed this walk,tho i did want to get some views,and if i ever do them again ill have a car at both ends :lol:
