Ascended from parking area near bottom of Glen Shee, and then followed the stream up (left-hand bank as you approach he col) and then pretty much followed the wall up to the top, via south-west top, 943m. From Craig Leacach summit (987m/3238’) returned by route of ascent. Quite an interesting route, although steep and rough in places. Denied any views by the weather, and eventually got soaked for my trouble, but nothing that dry clothes and a hot meal at the ski centre couldn't put right. Weather cleared up mid afternoon, so I went for another (short) walk.
Weather: Wet and windy with limited visibility, down to c. 50m. :) :)
