Cairngorm Club bus meet - Cairngorm Traverse. From car park at Coire Cas. Solo. After climbing Fiacaille Ridge I descended to the Shelter Stone via Coire Domhain. I joined a barbecue there with other club members. Took the path towards Loch Etchachan. Before the loch struck up the hillside to SW Top of Beinn Mheadoin. I continued to the main top of Beinn Mheadoin and scrambled up the rocks of the final tor. Walked south to reach the summit of Stob Coire Etchachan. I went a little NE before descending to Lairig an Laoigh. Walked out to Linn of Dee. There was no problem with the burn that caused so much trouble on the 2001 traverse.pwbellarby15/09/2002

Cairngorm Club bus meet - Cairngorm Traverse starting at Coire Cas. After Fiacaille a’ Choire Chais I descended Coire Raibert to the Shelter Stone. Continued on path towards Loch Etchachan, but then struck up hillside to the summit of Stacan Dubha. Went on to summit of the SW Top of Beinn Mheadhoin. It was by now very misty and damp. I went a little way towards the main summit and decided the conditions were not suitable for continuation. I went down SW to Loch Etchachan where I met the President’s Party. One of the Party joined me to descend past the Hutchison Memorial Hut and down Glen Derry and Linn of Dee. A good deal of difficulty crossing Glas Allt Mòr as it was in spate.pwbellarby16/09/2001
