Despite sections of backtracking a good round of four Corbett tops from the start of the Baddach track on the A93. On the track to the bridge then contouring round west for a way before heading straight up to Sgor Mor without difficulty. Then on to Creag an Fhuathais, back round to contour to Sgorr Mor N top and on to Cairn an Drochaide. On return spotted a path heading over the shoulder above Coire na Lairige which looked like an abandoned stalkers path and gave me a good line to head down to and through the woods back to the start.dickscroop26/08/2017

AVALANCHED ! With Mark & John -we triggered a 200 yard wide avalanche on the steep back wall of Coire Chrid up which we were ploughing looking for some snowy sport after a night of heavy snow.We got carried downhill on a carpet of snow -relatively little distance and benign but buried a crampon which we eventually found. A classic wind slab avalnche - heavy dump of new snow on a steep frozen base - add 3 novice winter hill walkers and hey presto. I still remember the woomph noise and seeing a crack split across the headwall before the whole slope began to move and us with it. In some ways a useful sobering lesson. Reascended the now bare slope for walk over the tops.Chris Pearson16/03/1985
