A slightly earlier start on this day, would have been earlier if we had not hung around waiting for the rain to ease off (which it never did !).

We headed South following the path to the bealach. We found a nice little howff on the way and stopped for a few minutes to make a brew. From the bealach we nipped directly up to the summit of Sgurr na Ciche. From this summit we headed on to Garbh Chioch Mor. There was snow on the ground here and it was snowing on the tops by now.

The last summit of the day was next, following the path to the summit of Sgurr nan Coireachan. From here the descent route took us North along the ridge and then West, descending into the glen and finally following the path back to the campsite.
