Climbed this one with my friend Neil on a nice Sunday morning. Left the car at 7.30am and set off up the now familiar track through the forestry. The going was very good as there had been no rain for weeks. Decided to do a round trip so went all the way up Coire Lair to climb the hill from the north side. This proved a good choice as we had the wind behind us the whole way.
Other detailed reports of the walk are already here on the site, I am merely providing some photos and a record of our day. There was a good warmth in the sun but once on the summit, the wind chill made it feel just about freezing point. The descent down the south side to join the bealach between Sgorr Ruadh and Fuar Tholl was easy going and we got back to the car at 1.20pm
