Glas Maol & Creag Leacach, maps 43; 14th March 2011
Ascent 780m = 2560', 7.7 miles, 5.5hrs.
Route: Because of poor conditions and lack of time,
this is a shortened version of the walk here.
That walk includes Cairn of Claise & Carn an Tuirc and optionally Tom Buidhe and Tolmount.
The first two of these were climbed the following day, as described here.
Conditions: A93 closed because of snow until after 11am.
Hence the late start and shortened walk.
1°C at Spittal; Overcast till cairn at NO15987591; Sunny intervals thereafter.
Whiteout from Little Glas Maol to cairn at NO15987591 (Hence slow speed there.)
Snow underfoot throughout; in cloud from Glas Maol summit to cairn at NO15987591; Light winds.
