After Gleouraich. Lots of snow and sun.mindlessflogger27/02/2010
with Jamie and Ben-Ji and almost missing proper summit. Clagged in and only got 1.50k map, having got to summit ridge and turned right gone further, finally find another major cairm which I assume to be the summit. We sit down for lunch for 20 mins or so and are just about to get up and hoof it on down the slope back when there is the briefest of half second break in the cloud revealing the true summit 3-400m away. quite shocked that I may have gone down and never ever realised I'd actually not been to the real summit!vegibagger25/08/2009
