Did this as a Munro top before it was demoted. Solo via Pinnacle ridge and continuing over Sgurr nan Gillean. Slight cock-up on abseil, got to bottom and realised I had left rucksac at top! Rigged up a prusik on the rope and used this for protection on climb back up to get it. Just one awkward bit on descent to bealach, may have been off route, used a sling to give me some protection.dickscroop26/08/2010
