Beautiful weather and views! Via the Ptarmigan ridge (routecard suggested here) - much more interesting than the tourist motorway! Took 6.5h with my slow-to-average speed parents rather than the 4.5h estimate though.
Katherine Ross - 31/May/14 with George Ross, Rhoda Ross

Climbed Ptarmigan route, tourist route on descent. Took around 5 hrs 35 mins, plus 10 mins at summit, 974m.

Start at 08.30. Parked in Row. Hotel car park and went up the path and back down at 12.20. Weather was wet, clouds were low, about 700m. Coser to the top the clouds came in, wind blew harder and snow came in. Thin layer of wet snow at top. Steep ascent, lots of rocks on path all the way to the top.
