|Just under 14 miles out and back from Sugar Bowl car park, the usual route through Chalamain Gap and up ridge onto summit of Braeriach, great views from the summit stretching from Lochnagar and the southern Cairngorms all the way to Morven in Sutherland, descended over Sron na Lairige summit and Creag a' Chalamain summit avoiding coming through the gap again. Sunny/high cloud all day, windy on ridge but not on summit of Braeriach, saw about 10 people all day.||DanTrig||19/06/2019|

|Solo. From Sugarbowl car park. Used path that heads towards Chalamain gap. Path very icy with fresh snow on top of ice. Left path to ascend Airgiod-meall. There's a fence to cross but there is a high stile. Continued to Creag a' Chalamain. Passed herd of free roaming reindeer who were quite unconcerned at my presence. Temperature of -9°C recorded at Cromdale this day, lowest recorded in Scotland so far this winter.||pwbellarby||27/12/2014|
