Cairngorm Club overnight meet. With Eilidh Scobbie and Marj Ewan. We were dropped off below Bealach an Lapain. We went up a path which goes up a gap between forests and not far from the forest lying to the east of the gap. At the top of the forest it goes east a little above the forest before ascending again and reaching Bealach an Lapain. We went westward on the ridge to Sgurr nan Spainteach, reaching it at 19:00. I saw a figure on the summit of Sgurr na Ciste Duibhe which later was discovered to be Rhona Fraser, another club member. We continued to the summit of Sgurr na Ciste Duibhe, reached at 20:10. We descended towards the col with Sgurr na Carnach, meeting Rhona. I found out later that she continued eastwards after she left us and got to Saileag. This was her Munro number 1000 ascent - a fine achievement. We continued to the summit of Sgurr na Carnach and then Sgurr Fhuaran.pwbellarby21/06/2008
