Ascended from glen Shiel over A' Crioch.PeakyPete11/06/2019
Headed in from Glen Sheil - good snow from about 650m. Min wind. I/M clear. Ascended North Ridge. Initially this is straight-forward. Then there is a section of 20m (steep arete and awkward step) which is pretty consequential - we roped up here. The summitted, west to Maol Chinn-dearg, then descended Drium Coire nan Eirecheanach - good winter mountaineering daywychwood05/03/2019
