Sunny no wind and clear day
Walked with shug fae ayr whom I caught up with after leaving the car park - after getting past a wee gnarly mongrelly ned of a dug with a chip on its shoulder!!
Followed the track up past the lochan and cut across and over the fence. Then up on the crispy surface. Couple of deep/ wide ravines to traverse round.
No bogs today- wahey. Round and up round and up . Thought we were at the summit but soon realised there was another few hundred metres to go and a stiff climb up. Crampons may have helped a bit but got up with no real probs and the views 360 were stunning.
Another bloke appeared from nowhere ( he'd come over Creag Mhor) as we were taking photos of everything around us. Down he went following our upward prints. We carried on for a bit and then headed down. Few steep bits which required a good look and some zig zagging and traversing.
Stayed right of the stream and got down to the dam - where a deed sheep awaited us !!
Back along the good track to the car park.
A good day out and glad I'd done it today in the crisp snow and sunshine rather than trudging through a bog in the rain.
Cap doffed to Beinn Sheasgsrnaich.
Cheers for the company Shug. Safe walking pal and maybe I'll bump into you somewhere else.
