The snow had mostly departed from the Einich area last Sunday with almost spring like conditions at the loch and on the crags above. Out to stretch the legs and to see if I can still manage to get around with the GPS....well to be a bit more prepared prior to the arrival of the nastier weather. The wee magic tool does not get out much during the summer months when map and compass does the job....oops! map and compass is always in the sack whatever the season.
After the high ground is reached a descent was made down the spur between Coire an Lochan and Coire Ruadh after reaching the coire floor, of Lochan, there is a wide choice of descents back to the Einich track.
