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 1024. 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 s ballachulish. Shame we got poor views higher up but a great day out and 2 more munros. 6hrs. 1500m ascent. 11 km.

Incredibly windy on summit ridge. Had to put goggles on to see, white-out conditions. Descent towards forestry was very steep. Couldn't find a path so eventually headed east Eastwards. Crossed stream and found the worlds boggiest path back through the woods to the quarry between N and S Ballahulish. Wouldn't recommend this descent to my worst enemy.

Partner: Bert. Start: 07:45. Parked at the school in West Laroch, Ballachulish. Walked south for 1km then turned to head not the ridge of Sgorr Bhan. Several scrambles to reach the top at 947m. Then onto the ridge to head up to Sgorr Dhearg before dropping to ~700m to bealach, then continued along the ridge to summit Sgorr Dhonuill, with a particularly dangerous scramble onto and over a snow cornice right at the summit. Very loose rock on approach to summit at Sgorr Dhonuill and loose scree on path up to Sgorr Bhan. Path on Sgor Bhan began after a large clearance on the ascent to the ridgeback. Weather was fabulous - bright with intermittent cloud, not touching the summits of these munros but other munros in the area. Snow underfoot, but avoidable except on the descent to the bealach from Sgorr Dhearg. Scrambles would have been very difficult in full winter condition. Walkout was through forest - dense growth that made walking and path finding very difficult, but thinned out eventually and found track. 5km walkout along forestry track. Better descent may have been back over Sgorr Dhearg and down the ridgeback that protrudes out into the forest. Arrived at car: 18:15.
