Description

Go up through the ski resort to reach the NW ridge of pt 1141.

Pass the cairn and go SW along the ridge to the summit of Sneachda, being careful of possible cornices to your right.

Descend Coire Domhain, the angle steepens as you descend.

Cross the river at an altitude approz 950m and head right to the base of the crag. Instead of going over pt 1141, it is also possible to follow the approach for Coire an t-Sneachda and go up the Goat Track to the top of the corrie.

The Goat Track should be avoided in avalanche-prone conditions.
