With RodOik12/06/2019
From Fassfern out towards bothy then up track to bridge then ATV track to north east ridge (Grant and Rod left here for Gulvain). Weather break near summit gave views of everything round about but on reaching col closed in so back down corrie to track and Fassfern.SS09/06/2019
From Fassfern via the bothy on the E side of the river, and up the NE ridge on a boggy ATV track to Meall Onfaidh, which then turns to become the SE ridge. Wandered over several candidate summit bumps to ensure the bag. Steep but easy descent on SW ridge, then up the N ridge of Aodann Chleireig, much more interesting than it looks, finding the way up easy breaks in the crags. Visited multiple summit candidates of similar height before realising that an arsewipe had chucked the cairn down onto the grass below. Rebuilt it, then down the SE ridge, finding an ATV track after the gate going down through the forest. Use it now before it gets completely overgrown. Maybe will need to use the forest road in a few years time.Gill11/06/2018
