... and here he is on the ridge proper which had snow cover from 700 altitude metres upwards. The clouds started to lift and fantastic views appeared. There are few better views than Munros with just a dusting of snow.
On the Northern side there are steeper corries with some winter climbs and the cliffs sometimes appear on the rim.
Here a look back in the direction of the five sisters of Kintail.
Some good views also over the Munros to the South with Knoydart being on the other side of the loch...
... and some more great views a bit later.
The ridge drags on but is beautiful but there is never too much ascending. It is like a set of waves.
Here are Roger and Mike again doing the last third...
... with obligatory bum glissades.
We descended at dusk and followed the long landrover track to the Cluanie for a good meal plus beers. The Cluanie Inn is very much recommended with excellent food, good beers and a famous whisky collection.
Mike and Roger still smiling the morning after.
We decided to climb A'Chralaig and Mullach Fraoch-Choire with a start from the Cluanie but on the Northern side of Glenshiel. Good views higher up over the South Glenshiel ridge.
A few trickier steps or easier steps made tricky!
We were also treated to a 'mauvais pas', a wee exposed scrambling problem. Mike and Roger had developed a great fondness for those 'mauvais pas' since the one on the A'Cir ridge on Arran which was highly entertaining.
We had a brief period of graupel but then the views re-appeared. Here is Roger with a dynamic body position ...
... and here is Mike...
... and here are both on this bit of the ridge.
On the way down heaven opened and it snowed higher up and rained lower down but at the end the blue skies returned once again.
