Didnt get up here until 1am. Slept in the car in the forest car park for a few hours.
Walking at 20 to 8.
Along past the 1st wire bridge and cut down at the wee cairn. Wasn't messing about with the 2nd wire bridge so a place to cross was sought and found.
Not too wet.
Up on the good track till it peter's to a path up to the beallach. Sgurr Choinnich showed glimpses of how good it would look on a clear day - but alas....
Only a short descent - no more than 140m then up to Sgurr a'chaorrachain.
Steep descent on a wet misty hill - care taken.
As i descended i aimed for what looked like a white bridge over the stream - and I kept aiming for it. And when I got to it; it was - white water!!!
Managed to boulder hop across and a decent walk back and check in at Gerrys!

In my opinion - anybody who goes on the hills should be made to sign a form- not one that says take a map or water or wear boots - if should say " I promise to visit Gerrys at some point on my walking ventures" ; just to see that lampshade; and experience what a proper hostel is like :wink:
Cheers
