Wow, first Munro and in Winter too.

Did not see much of the path due, to snow, however initial ascent up to the Saddle was reasonably good going. From the saddle to the Peak was just great. Route was ice covered and rocky, but for fleeting moments amongst the snow and cloud, the views were amazing.

Descent was just over an hour and apart from disapearing into the snow, was good going.

Just want to do more now
