I planned to walk the eastern reeks in a anti-clockwise direction in order to ensure I got a few peaks even if I didn't fancy the Knocknapeasta ridge and beyond. Ascending directly to Cruach Mhor might have meant I got no further! In the event, as 1. I was alone, 2. I had not crossed the ridge before, and 3. It was pretty windy, I decided discretion was the better part of valour, and after a sortie out to Knocknapeasta, retreated back to Maolan Bui and down the bone.

My route down the bone should not be followed blindly, there are many route options that can be taken - there is a path of sorts but it can be hard to follow, small stretches of scrambling are likely to regain it, my route has a couple of these.
