Parked at the wee lochan and continued up to the ridge. The climb up Meall Sron Dearg up the snow and ice was rather interesting to say the lest, my most extreme winter conditions yet. Once safely up, the ridge went on and on but the visibility got less and less and a bit woresome when close to the cornices. Reached the first summit (which was covered in snow) and met Colin from Chester and Mike from Middlesburgh with whom I tagged along for the rest of the walk. Their experience was reassuring and their companying was welcome in such trying white out conditions. We got to the second summit then retraced our steps back over Stob a'Coire Mheadhoin down to a plateau then west to the path and dismantled railway back to the car.
