A Cairngorm journey

Another lovely sunny day and even warmer than yesterday!

I walked up the Fiacaill Ridge for a wee bit of a scramble then down Half a Gully rather than walk across the plateau. Aladdin's Couloir looked fun as a way back up and then I was off to the summit of Cairngorm as it was just the kind of day for being on a summit to enjoy the views. As a change to walking down from Point 1141, I walked back over to the top of Jacob's Ladder and climbed down there.

There weren't as many folk around as I expected but it was a very sociable day and nice to chat to the two skiers at the top of Half A Gully, the two climbers who were having a picnic on Aladdins Seat who I later bumped into again as they climbed out of Jacob's Ladder as I was about to go down and Ron who had been on a navigation course with me a while back who was out today with his friend Raymond.

Ron was out with his client Stephen on the summit of Cairngorm collecting the views.
