Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the Coire Cas car park and ascended via Sròn an Aonaich. The old Ptarmigan restaurant is being rebuilt together with the railway and as a result a helicopter was continuously transferring cement from the car park to just below the summit. The final 150m climb was in thick snow yet a very hot temperature. At the top there was not a breath of wind and a snow bunting sang from the cairn
