What a day - Sun, snow & excitement. Started at youth hostel - initially path is great but I went too far. Initial path is M1 but don't be sucked in. Head for Coire Eis (fairly obvious) boulder field but easy - & climbed to summit - guide books do not mention this route - why? Health & safety toooo far. Yes when claggy may be difficult but this is THE Cullin - ultimate respect. Cloud lifted & route to summit became obvous.

Climbed with snow from 1000 ft. No probs 2 up 1 down but worth it. Views amazing - bearings no problem.
