Creag Coire nan Each south of Mam Sodhail from Glen Affric

Sunday was forecast to be less windy than Saturday so we chose Sunday for an attempt on Mam Sodhail. We sussed a way up to the ridge on the southern side of Creag a Chaorainn that was only a 40 min carry from Strawberry Cottage. Note image is a route not a track. More snow fell during the day giving snow to the valley floor. There is a very small knoll at NH 120 219 which is a marker point between the upper and lower mountain. It was about minus 7 with a 35mph wind and mixed vis.

At Creag Coire nan Each we split into two parties. Working round the ridge towards Man Sodhail we were literally driven back by the increasing wind in reducing visibility prior to the 1108 spot height. It took another hour to work our way back to Creag Coire nan Each by which time things eased off a bit. The warmth of the hut was a pleasant change.
