Club Meet from Feshiebridge bunkhouse, we decided the night before that we would do Bynack More. The five of us started off from the carpark just beyond the Glenmore Lodge training centre at 0855hrs, it was very cold but dry, no sun but slightly overcast and with hardly any wind. The good walking track takes you through the old pinewood forest towards the Ryvoan Bothy, not hanging about we quickly came to the signposted junction, see photographs.

They had not built this pathway when I was here last in 1996, it's a lot easier and dryer now, great stuff.

About 850m time for the crampons, gradient much steeper and the snow covering is hard
