Nice morning, but tops stayed cloudy until I started to descend. Very rocky/bumpy route after the lochan.
Unusually warm. Combined with Beinn Chabhair, Beinn a' Chroin and some subsidiary peaks. Met a Brummie on the way up.
This was part of a a two week mountain binge at the end of university exams. We packed my old Toyota until it groaned and headed off to Lochdochart where we rented out a farm house and bagged everything we could find. There are some long circular routes in this region with fantastic views, which certainly make the days worth while.
Approach via Ben Glas for a tougher but more rewarding way up than the normal route. Loads of bouldering and micro scrambles/routes on the crags that you seem to run into every few minutes. A lot of leg work. Good to do An Caisteal too, while you're here, but it's a fair old dip between the two peaks.
Bit of a boggy trudge before arriving at the lochan, but nice from that point on.
A nice hike, well worth the effort
