No time to enjoy the scenery, we continue on the ridge.

It needs some navigation in the mist to find the way to Ruadh-stac Mor.

In the descend it starts raining. We have some view on the Triple Buttress, but meanwhile we are triple wet.

But the rain doesn't last forever and we can enjoy some views.


We even have some view on Loch Torridon in the distance.
