On Day 7 of TGO Challenge. Also climbed on 29/11/86.Phreerunner18/05/2017
TheDev and I set off from the re-located Scottish National Trust car-park late morning on a terrific blue-sky day. Through the nature reserve, the easy bit, then almost straight up the south west shoulder, tough going, to a very windy summit on that day. Descended via the path on the saddle below Ben Lawers along Coire Odhar and back to the carpark for an easy descent, a good preview of the route up BL for future reference. Paths are in good nick, although new desire lines are appearing, SNT doing a good job keeping on top of the traffic.thedobber03/05/2017
