An out and back trip along a spectacular ridge to take in five +500m summits I hadn't climbed yet. Low visibility on the high ground unfortunately. Had to skip Binn Bhreac as I did not wanted to finish before it got really too dark to navigate without the headtorch. Maybe not the best route down, but I wanted to reach the low ground as early as possible as to avoid having to tackle the steep ground I had encountered on the way up in the dark.
