The track through the woods is largely clear of snow, allowing quick and easy access, but thereafter, there is still a lot of the stuff. The crest of the ridge lower down has suffered from all this good weather, but a steep, open gully on the right allowed us to stick to snow for much of the way.
Thereafter, it was fairly easy going, but there are still some patches of firmer snow up high. The cornices either side of the ridge are quite impressive, and won’t hang on for much longer! This was my first time on Beinn a’Chaorainn where it was clear, so we both enjoyed absorbing the views from the summit.
