A scramble right away to get into the forest it keeps it up right to the top above a cascade and large boulder.

Just a steady walk up to the lochan from there.

Turn right after the lochan by Joe Kincaid, on Flickr
The top was in clag but getting the odd glimpse. Had my lunch in some shelter and waited. Need to remember that it always clears later on and sure enough it did it again today when I was on my way down.
The ridge down to the bealach is not an easy walk and crags to be avoided.

From the point, the lower crags to be avoided by walking to lochan and keeping to south side are more obvious. When I got to the right of way the top was clear. It is a long trudge back to the car park from here, but the sun came out o make it pleasant.
