did this round the other way a decade ago and nice to see some of the stuff i didnt see then. at least that way round from the Cairn a Mhaim ridge its pretty obvious a route UP Macdui!
Yeah i think the other way round would have been far the better option!
Still, it's nice to have finally got into the high cairngorms. Even if one of the peaks was "unintentional"

I remember meeting some people coming down the boulder field as I was ascending Macdui from CaM and I was so glad I wasn't doing it in descent. Still a toughie the other way round, especially when you run out of water on Derry Cairngorm.
NOT cool, with an enormous walk out!
