Conditions: dry, warm, minimal cloud, good visibility even in cloud.
Notes: longish walk in but very nice with good path. Very steep grassy start. Scrambling on grass. Lots of hands on. Book just described as steep. Rest of walk to both munros was very straight forward with frequent paths throughout. First munro (Aonach Beag) was unfortunately in cloud but Aonach Mor was clear with fine veiws of Ben Nevis. Inital descent was relatively easy to find with gps and cairn but very steep and hard going the knees although not very technical with little risk of falling. Path all the way down. Long boggy picturesque valley walk back to Steall falls. Nice paddle in river at bottom.
Enjoyability: 6/10
Hardness: 5/10
