Parked by the dam and set off north along the path to the east of the Markie burn. Crossed at fords near the confluence with Piper's burn and then headed NW initially following the burn then veering more northwards just before Lochan a' Choire. Once on the summit ridge head W then SW to summit cairn. Plenty of snow above 400 metres, but older and partly frozen (just enough give so that crampons not required). Wind chill on the summit ridge significant, so no hanging around - after a quick summit photo re-traced steps back to the car.
