A fine ridge walk to return to Affric Lodge from Mam Sodhail, though Sgurr na Lapaich is a Hump to climb at the end of a long day. The views on the descent from this summit down to Glen Affric were very beautiful. A 17 mile day (see Mam Sodhail log for route). With Petepwheeler25/05/1991
from M C R. to top at end of ridge. 17.20. Steep crags on E face meant a detour to S. Faint path until heather and swamp took over. Another 2 long miles, boot full of sludge, to stalkers' path and rapidly down to road and car at 19.00. 16 1/2 m - 9 hours. 2 estate cars passed PVK7 and 7PVK!arranc04/06/1989
