Not sure why this isn't starred, It's an excellent route. Took the scrambly path up to the end of the horns as the snowline was quite high, I imagine this would be quite interesting if it were much lower. Nice to be moving quickly again - 4h30 car to car :)

Superb day out, cracking views in all directions. Snow was soggy but a firm crust. Unfortunately I kept breaking through which made for hard going at some points.

Terrible snow pack conditions. Powdered snow on bare rock. The little bit of frozen turf couldn't give me confidence over the large amount of windslab breaking up when crossing tops of gullies. Needs a good freeze-thaw cycle to be stable.

awesome day out. Started manky but cleared up once we gained the horns with fine views over a very white glen torridon. Even blessed by the presence of an eagle!
