With Brian R. from the campsite in very warm, sunny weather. A slog up but easy in the end.Play2End26/05/2016
Starting off from the Glen Brittle YHA in cold but sunny weather. The ascent was up into a hanging valley able to reconise errors of previous ascents in this region in dense cloud. The visibility was spectacular all round. The final ascent up scree lined with snowy slabs made the ascent to An Dorus and opened the door to ridge scramble ascent to the final summit which laid the world at our feet. We returned by the same route being tempted to swm in the numerous plunge pools in the steams we walked beside. We resisted the urge as the air temperature was low.david.walker4013/05/2016
