With the Cairngorm Club. In the President's Party led by Peter Howgate. From the Cairnwell Pass at NO139782 via Loch Vrotachan, across Baddoch Burn on a bridge at NO107794. I joined a splinter party to the west summit of An Socach (the Munro summit), omitted by the main party. We went to the east summit of An Socach, Creag an Fhuathais and down to Glen Ey to Inverey. There was thick mist until the east summit of An Socach. There was very little snow.pwbellarby26/10/1980
