Although there was no blue skies, the extensive clouds had lifted, with their base well above the summits. The promise of the sun breaking through remained nothing more than a tease throughout the day. Having said that, the weather was very muggy and it was clear this would be a sweaty and breathless ascent. There is a good path from the car park but be warned it quickly becomes an almost vertical staircase which in the weather was extremely hard going. Plentiful rest stops when the puffing and panting became to much afforded great views over to the Aonach Eagach ridge.
