MMC weekend in Inverlael. Bein Dearg 4 with Robert Wight, Eunice Coop, John Berry and Jeremy Idle. Lovely sunny blue sky day with cloud inversion to west. Microspikes on mixed neve, snow and rock.alexmaclennan14/03/2015
Fourth day of five-day trip with DW & SL. Staying in Aultguish. Linda joined us for this day too, but did not do all four peaks with us. Classic Beinn Dearg horseshoe from Inverlael. This was an easier day than expected. The ascent to the ~850m col is very gentle, making it very easy. Good weather, with a haze 'inversion'.

With Rhona Fraser. After climbing Cona Mheall and Beinn Dearg from the north end of Loch Glascarnoch. From the summit of Beinn Dearg we went down beside a wall and up to Meall nan Ceapraichean then to Ceann Garbh, going east a little after that to avoid the steepest descent. Then to Eididh nan Clach Geala. Went down the west ridge eventually dropping to join the footpath in Gleann na Sguaib. We walked down the footpath and track to reach Inverlael. 5200ft of ascent. Weather dry and cold initially and also on final summit.pwbellarby13/06/1993
