The 2015 Challenge, day 11: Loch Vrotachan to Kirkton of Glenisla (4)
According to my route card, having reached the summit of Carn Aosda I was going to do an out-and-back to Creag Leacach. According to my dynamic assessment of the conditions on the mountain, however, no way was I going to spend time up on this ridge, in next to zero visibility, with a steady snowfall which could become worse at any moment. These were not conditions for staying high. These were conditions for getting off the mountain as swiftly as possible. So I set a bearing for Little Glas Maol, and continued into what was, for me, terra incognita.
