Was a great day at the bottom of the hill, but by the time we got to the top we were definitely above the snow level. I was glad that I had my new walking poles, as they helped keep me balanced plowing to the top. It was a bit ropey going through the boulder field in the snow (unfortunately we missed real path), but we all got there in once piece and once we'd made it to the top of Stuc a'Chroin it was fairly easy going back down through the valley.

All in all, a great if tiring day out.
