Started at the ski-centre car park, taking the main path to Ben Macdui via Fiacaill na Leth-choin. Returned over the North Top then the Fiachaill Coire an t-Sneachda ridge. Tasty little ridge in high winds!summitter28/06/2019
From the base at Cairngorm ski centre, we headed out west and south to the base on the Fiacaill Coire An T-Sneachda. This fantastic grade 1 scramble gives amazing veiws over both the Cories an Lochain and T-Sneachda. The scramble was great at times, with climbing moves and very exposed! Once up on Cairn Lochan, we strode out along the plataue, stopping once for some lunch, and made our way up the last ascent to Ben MacDui, the 2nd highest Munro! After taking in the panorama, we b-lined strait towrds the north top, and dropped down to the edge around Loch Avon. Down this side, there were huge patches of snow, we ran, jumped and skied down, we even saw a ski tourist! Coutining round the ridge towards Stob Coire An T-Sneachda, we had to pass a snow birdge, which Jonny broke, and the others had to walk further up! From Fiacaill A' Choire Chais, we had the last 100m shoot up to Cairn Gorm; #7. Some more food, then a long slog down to the top of the Cairngorm Funiculair Mountain Hut, and finByronHaywood20/04/2019

Cairngorm Club bus meet - Cairngorm Traverse. By bus from Aberdeen to the Coire Cas car park (Cairngorm). Solo. Bus journey had been in mist and drizzle, but the weather was now good and remained so all day - high pressure. Dry, warm and quite sunny. Light breeze at times.
