With friends. From a campsite on the SE side of Loch Pattack. We ascended the NE ridge of Carn Dearg (1034m). I went on to the subsidiary top of Diollaid a Chairn, catching them up in An Lairig. We climbed up steeply to join the SW ridge of Beinn a Chlachair and so to the summit. We descended by the NE ridge and went back to the camp site. Cycled out to Dalwhinnie.pwbellarby07/07/2004

Last Top before Carn Dearg.Aye Jimmy05/05/1996
Reached from Geal Charn after a traverse of the ridges to Beinn Eibhinn and back. This leg was quite an adventure as the cornice where Geal Charn's NE ridge steepens was very unstable and, although kicked into, had slopes of about 50 deg. As we came up Lancet Edge early in the day, I'd spotted this, and a traverse across a shelf to the ridge which we decided to take, but it still involved a 30 foot long crossing of easily a 30 deg snow slope. Without ice axe and crampons, we took a detached fence post for balance (the snow was too soft for crampons to be much use anyway). After this excitement, we walked along an easy and in places delightful ridge over this Munro top and on to Carn Dearg. With brother, Pete.pwheeler25/05/1994
