Minor detour on descent from today's Munro bagging.Crib Goch18/10/2015
After ascending Carn Dubh, Carn an Tuirc and Cairn of Claise. There is a curious wall topped with iron fence posts over the summit of Cairn of Claise. At both ends, to the north and SW of the summit, the wall ends abruptly with no remains of any wall beyond. From the summit of Cairn of Claise I followed a path alongside the wall to its end, continuing to join the Monega Pass path. I deviated from it to take in Cairn of Claise. This is a rather shapely peak in spite of its modest drop. There is a summit cairn and one or two small rock projections close by that could be as high.pwbellarby14/10/2015
