Left Sligachanat 8:30 in drizzle but with summits just visible. Continued up the side of Allt Dearg Mor to the Bealach na Mhaim then analog up onto the Northwest ridge. Once on the ridge tiredness left as the exhilaration of some fine scrambling took hold and the summit came all too soon. After some refreshments we descended to Bealach na Lice where two of the party left for home and the remainder countered round and up to Bealach a Bhaister. We scrambled up but took the ledge round the right hand side to avoid the bad step but for some every step was bad. The summit was gained with much relief. The descend for some was relatively quick again countering round the bad step. A wait at the Bealach ensued but a nice wait it was, followed by a long trudge back to the hotel for a lift back to the bunkhouse. A fine evening of ales, tales, music and song was enjoyed by all.
