Climbed on 4/7/08 from Derry Lodge. Brilliant day. Shimmering heat haze in Larig Ghru. Via Cairn Toul and Briariach tops & to Sron na Larige. Return S to flat bealach S of Sron na Larige and descend carefully into Larig. There is a faint un-mapped path that is readily followed. BUT be VERY, VERY careful on snow band in highest 100m. Its VERY steep and even in hot July sun the snow was too hard to kick reliable steps into. Descend snow band ONLY with crampons etc. But snow band easily turned to its north and would be to its south. A few helicopter bits on way down. 35 mins to reach Larig Grhu.

Despite the fact that we did this in Mid summer the weather was a bit of a nightmare! The first snow fell at around 1000m, and it got worse from there! By the time we got to the top the snow was drifting and falling continuously blown by a strong wind. Had earlier considered going on to complete Angels Peak & Cairn Toul but the weather changed our minds. Perhaps just as well, as we had forgotten how far we had come, and still had to get back! Dropping down into the Lairig Ghru, and climbing back up to Chalamain gap was a real killer! 7 hours 30 mins round trip.

We started at the sugar bowl car park. It's a lengthy walk in! We left the car at 11ish and reached the foot of the Sron na Larige at about 1 (though we did mess around in the Chalamain Gap for a while). Ascent up the Sron na Larige allows for good views towards Cairn Lochain and Sgor Gaoith. In poor visibility finding the summit of Braeriach requires good navigation. The summit cairn was possibly hidden under snow. We stood at what we believed to be the highest point along the corrie rim. Didn't get back to the car until 7.20.

Bike from whitewell, good track to the loch...up stalkers path to plateau, on to Sgor an Lochain Uiane, then followed corrie edges round to Braeriach...due west took me to Coire Bogha-clioch then steeply down to bike...easy ride out...a good round circuit.

We climbed the route (20/06/2002) and low cloud closed in on our approach to the summit. In poor visibilty the rule is "stick to the path" It does take you to the summit. After 1300hrs the cloud base lifted and we were rewarded with some good views. A moderate climb and as they say, a good day out.

We walked out from the Garbh Choire bothy after not climbing due to lack of snow on Sunday 11th December with fantastic views. Suggest route above rather than through the Lairig Ghru as we did.
