Solo. From the car park at Spittal of Glenmuick. After climbing Little Pap continued up to the rock tor that marks the summit of Cuidhe Cròm. Continued towards the main summit of Lochnagar but soon came across a group of three young people who wanted to know how to get down to Glas-allt-Shiel. It was very misty. They had no compass, a poorly printed copy of a map and were not where they thought they were. I went with them and showed them the path down to Glas-allt-Shiel.pwbellarby02/08/2016

Cairngorm Club bus meet. Solo. I left Spittal of Glen Muick starting on the route up the track (which eventually leads to Meikle Pap Cuidhe Crom col), but struck off to make a route direct to Little Pap. I had gone south a little on a path which skirts Little Pap to the east, so the route was not absolutely direct. I continued to reach Cuidhe Crom. I joined the Ladder route, but made a more direct route (nearer the corrie edge) to reach Carn Cac Mor and then Cac Carn Beag.pwbellarby11/01/1998
Included in our day on Lochnagar and Meikle Pap- from the corrie rim and back to the same spot, we didn't want to miss a step of the rim. This summit was the windiest place on the day by a long way.pwheeler23/06/1997
