second ascent of beinn sgulaird, with a first ascent of the 2 south tops, 2 in party, clear for most of the day, then a prolonged snow shower as we start our descent, climbed from druimavuic, pt 488 and up the ridge to pt 863, cut steps in the descent, pt 848, again cut steps down from this top and the final summit ridge in crampons, only taking them off after descending a few hundred metres from the summit.rum doodle 07/02/2013
Climbed this on a thoroughly miserable day, cloud from ground level to the tops. I'm sure it's lovely, but in that weather it was just grim :-)Cap_Thunderbolt08/09/2012
