While enjoying a wee weekend away at the Crianlarich Hotel I took the opportunity to complete one of the Breadalbanes missing from my bag. Was a bit apprehensive considering the dusting of snow and the lack of crampons. Fortunately we had some Yak Tracks which performed well on the day. As reported previously it is a relentless climb but the views are superb. Added bonus was the free drink in the hotel for posting summit pic on their website.

The snow was about a foot deep on top but the path was still well defined above the snow lined due to the traffic. Definately need some extra grip for downhill.
