From camp at col 141419. Walked ridges to Meall nan Eun before descending Glen Ceitlein.mindlessflogger19/07/2008
Day 2 of a 2-day trek- Victoria Lodge to Coletir via the twisting ridge to the E of this Munro. On a worsening day I took a direct line to pt 602 from the forest edge and had enough visibility to appreciate the fine, slabby ridge to the summit.The SMC District Guide is keen on this way though it was very remote, with little sign of footprints. Top in cloud, heavy rain on way down making gorges, robbers' waterfall spectacular. A very fine crossing.pwheeler17/06/2008
