In to Linn of Avon from Corgarff. Clagged in and baltic - had to stop to add more layers and dig out heavy gloves. Somehow missed this in the forecast. On the plus side saw an eagle lift off in front of me at Lagganauld.

Up the path onto the Ben Avon plateau. Bugger all viz and barely seeing the line of the path in front of me. Once the path ended the nav got even more interesting. Occurred to me at that point that I really should have printed off a map for today…. made sure then to cuddle the phone up in a buff to try and ensure the battery didn’t die. Compass had a bubble in it too, and wasn’t confident it was settling right. It’s quite confusing up there when you can’t see the slopes, so was stopping at regular intervals to check location. Made sure to map memory some bearings ahead too, in case of electronic failure! Pretty chilly in the damp clag, though thankfully not too windy, and my mood (which was poor at the start) reflected the weather. One of those days when I really could have used some company. Hit the top eventually and then headed off the north ridge on a line I’d not run before, hoping it wasn’t going to be too steep / rocky and / or snowy. Thankfully it wasn’t and would be a lovely line off in better weather, though the trudge at the bottom to reach the Avon and track was messy through some complex terrain. Then it was just a tired (though somewhat relieved) plod back down to the bike.
Not memorable for much other than slogging it out, but will need to head back in better weather to explore further.

Back oot. Only highlight being to see the eagle again, further along the track.
