Much easier than expected. Up from the south, west of all the fallen trees, then easily up through pleasant open woodland. Down east to Gelder Burn was fine as well.alda23/03/2019
After Canup, cairn on boulder; tall Meml cairn to N is lower, as per map. Cairn is dated 1874, meml to Marriage of Alfred Duke of Edinburgh, to Grand Duchess Marie Alexandrowna of RussiaRHW07/10/2018
I approached from Gelder Shiel bothy. There's a lot of windthrow on the slopes but fairly easily negotiated. A craggy section has obvious breaks - quite fun. Summit tree covered and vegetated with a cairn on the highest spotColin Crawford02/11/2015
