After having climbed the Long Leachas and reached the minor top, we paused to look down the Short Leachas and it looked so much easier, the Munro book tells us it's shorter but involves more difficult scrambling, is this case or did it look easier because we were looking down? Does the remains of the shelter house just below the Ben Alder summit have anything to do with the Ordnance Survey in the dim and distant past?
