Interesting conditions for this ascent. Cloud beneath the ridge but also above. Didn't see much of anything after descending west from Spidean and also managed to mistake that northern spur for the main ridge. A great scramble though.

Had great fun the night before putting up a tent amidst a swarm of our small itchy biting friends. My tactic of pulling my jumper and shirt over my head for protection was somewhat flawed.

For anyone interested this picture was taken using, I believe, a free hand wound Supasnaps camera! Used them for a couple of years for mail order processing until they lost a film from a glorious winter day.
