Not really much more than a walk if you take the easiest route on the ridge.

Very remote but Grade 1 by easiest variation, harder scrambling options (grade 2-3) to the left. Superb grippy granite blocks. Balance up the 'garden wall' feature good fun.

Midge net compulsory. Dash up from lairig ghru up to the top was a non stop race to not get eaten.

Fantastic day amongst some of our biggest mountains. The crux of the day was trying to cross the stream by the bothy which was very full of snow melt!

Basically summer conditions, although couldn't resist the nice snow crest halfway up.

Fantastic big day out. Ridge feels remote but the only real scrambling is on last 50m to summit.

A great route but with a long approach route. Wet and windy, especially on the summit plateau. Continued to the Devils Point and camped at Corrour Bothy. An easy walk out to Linn O Dee via Derry Lodge.

Elsier 04/Jan/13 Solo

Not much snow so summer conditions, long day and a bit windy and misty but cleared on the walk back over Braeriach

Great fun. Certainly didn't take the easiest or most sensible route...great fun though.

The l-o-n-g walk in is worth it for the situation, even though the scrambling is only confined to the top part of the ridge.
