Hazy views, after 10 days of anticyclone which I missed! This had been an 'orphan' peak for a while so it was good to do it, though barely running at all. Mild, calm, some sunshine, patches of thawing snow.NorfolkPT2128/03/2022

From Fersit. Stob Coire Sgriodain main and south top, Chno Dearg. Beautiful sunny, clear day. Pathless. boggy and difficult.Lazylizzie01/08/2021
With Alex McBride from Fersit we climbed Stob Coire Sgriodain (978m) & Chno Dearg (1046m) Munro numbers 148 & 149 respectively for me, while repeats for Alex. We included the Munro Tops of Stob Coire Sgriodain South Top (958m) and Meal Garbh (976m). There was snow patches on Chno Dearg and the descent from here through the boulder field, was made unpleasant with the wet snow in between the rocks, no views due to cloud and quite cold, 7:12hrs all in.chillyman814/11/2020

Snow from about 300m, becoming deeper and with icy patches, clear views from the summit of Stob Coire Sgriodain with cloud swirling at times. As we crossed to Chno Dearg the cloud closed in completely. Powder snow for the long gradual descent north, views across the valley. Great day. John M and Gillian, CSSC.Cumbrianexile25/02/2020
