Insignificant re-ascent but a key point where the long switchback ridge just N of E from Carn Eige has a SE spur. I was on the long ridge, with my brother Pete, today. In 2010, I came up the SE ridge, a delightful way from the stalkers' path in the glen. Impressive pinnacles W of this top.pwheeler25/05/1991
