Who would have thought a day in early November would be such a perfect mountain day. A wee dusting of icing sugar snow on the tops, the exposure on the last wee bit of ascent to the summit was not as bad as I had feared (after watching another couple using the outside route) I chose a different route up the middle. Only ravens & ptarmigen + 3 other humans for company. I chose a descent route down a gully with loose scree adopting a bum slide manoeuvre to get to the bottom (didnt fancy the backclimb/scramble on the exposed bit to the bealach & the recommended descent route). Picked up a path to the edge of a fence & a more defined path thru the trees to a forest road. Plain sailing from there to the car at BallachulishLizzieG07/11/2016
