Alot of wet snow on the top 200m of the SE and NE ridges of Sgurr nan Ceathramhnan. With Gillianrichard6922/04/2024

1/3 - big day from Glen Affric hostel - fair weather. The initial walk in to col feels easy enough but lots of up and down to the first summit. Promise of clearing skies didn't happen.....wychwood18/09/2022
With Pete, Tim B, Ella, Rory, Rafi, Alex, & Fergus. From Stob Coire na Cloiche. Lovely ridge approach. Descended back to Alltbeithe via Coire na Cloiche to fell wildcamp & walk out to the Cluanie Inn. Bit claggy at the top, but heavily raining on descent and horribly sodden in the bog with tricky river crossings on the walk out.millionmts15/08/2022

An Socach, Mullach nan Dheiragain and Sgùrr nan Ceathreamhnan solo from Glen Affric in a day. Was originally planning to do these as a 2-day trip with a stay at Altbeithe, but due to the Covid closure, I decided to try it as a single day outing. Took the bike and left Glen Affric car park at just after 4am in pitch black - head torch and bike front light illuminating the Affric/Kintail way. Track was rideable for the first 4.5 miles though - but after Athnamulloch, it was mostly unrideable with large boulder-covered sections of track, and frequent flooded sections, so it ended up being almost 6:30am by the time I arrived at the hostel. In hindsight, I'd rather have just left the bike at home and done the 6miles walk-in/out from Cluanie (boggy but almost 3 miles shorter). Locked the bike at Althbeithe and had a wee breather on a log, taking in some breakfast. The hill walk started cloudy with drizzle so I was in full waterproofs for most of the initial ascent.
