Alot of fresh snow made for hard work. Still weather was fantastic, very alpine. Downclimbed just before the bad step on the south side

Fantastic alpine summer conditions - T-Shirt on the summit! 5 of us did the ridge up to The Saddle. We initially followed the fresh footprints left by a previous solo walker (Presumably colin fagan below!). We did the abseil on the bad step, adding 1 sling to back up the existing abseil tat. One particularly exposed section was performed roped up alpine-style.

Got to pretty much the top of sgur nan Forcan saw how far we had to go, checked the time and decided to down climb what we had done. Lots of deep powder snow. Great day out

Done on a cold day, a long committing route but great views through the clouds. Reached the Saddle summit helped build a snow hold for 8 people and slept till the next day to summit Sgurr Nan Sgine.

Roped up with Keith. Dave B and Dave C soloed the whole route. Windslab and sun-softened recent snow on the aretes felt pretty dodgy. An amazing route; very 'Alpine' and quite scary.

Just a bit too warm, snow in bad conditions so we aborted our plans ate our sandwiches and stared up at the ridge instead.

Reached the foot of the Ridge after traversing the initial top but turned back as the return ground looked very remote & avalanche prone with one metre of new snow on the mountain! Again defeated the following winter by extreme winds!
