Ascent Trip Report

Third and final 3000' summit of the day and 2nd Munro. Had hoped to continue west and complete Balacullish Horseshoe, but extra distance and more importantly heavy rain and poor visibility persuaded me to return over ground already covered back to beallach with Sgorr Dhearg and descend via route spotted earlier down Gleann a' Chaolaise.
