Ballachulish horseshoe with Rob Cook. Start Ballachulish village head s then w to join ridge at beinn bhan. Gain height up ridge to sgorr bhan with good views to skiers ascending ridge to our left and views across to Glencoe and loch leven. Cloudbase about 800 then in cloud for Sgorr Dhearg (1024m). Compass check proved that our instincts would have sent us down the wrong ridge (n) as the summit approach curved around. Descended w to col for lunch out of the wind, then ascend Sgorr Dhonuill (1001m) again heavy spring snow but crampons not required. Descended w then bum slide to loose height down snowfields north into Gleann a Chaolais and second car at South Ballachulish. Shame we got poor views higher up but a great day out and 2 more munros. 6hrs. 1500m ascent. 11 km.
