No cap or plug. From W, car park S of Garbat. Excellent trail which I used on way down. Long anticlockwise circuit taking in the mountain's subsidiary tops. As usual lots of folks on main trail, hardly anyone elsewhere. Gorgeous morning, pm grey but stayed dry

Log #114. Usual route - parked at the Garbat car park on the A835 and followed the track. Sat at the bottom of the stairs and had a half-sandwich to try and build up some resolve. Had another break for 5 mins at the boulder, and made slow progress but reached the cairn at An Cabar eventually. The section along the bealach from An Cabar > Carn a' Chaiptein > Glas Leathad Mor was a sprint by comparison before stopping at the trig point. Pillar is in good condition, with cap missing and BSM style flush bracket. Still quite a lot of snow of the eastern side of the hill, and I couldn't resist making some snowballs. Spent maybe 20 mins at the summit plateau for photos and a snack before heading for home. I skipped the An Cabar summit on the way back by skirting around the western edge of the hill - it joins back up to the main path before the top of the stairs. I wouldn't recommend doing that in wet weather or low visibility though, as it'd be really easy to slip and roll down the coire. The stairs were an absolutely knee-destroyer on the way back down, and I was getting weary by the time I got back to the river. I couldn't really give it any less than 10/10, as the weather was incredible - mild, no breeze, high visibility. Sitting at home now, with a beer and ice packs on my knees, I'm proud to say that's my first munro ticked off! [ExP-103/MiP-2/Rev-1/BM-8]

Spider open at centre but filled with ice. Misty with snow lying above 900m so I was cocooned in a mini-winter wonderland. Saw enough on the way down to realise this must be a good viewpoint, looking west at the very least.

Parked in free car park at NH410671 just off SE side of A835. Followed well maintained footpath all the way to cairn at NH450666 then follow the summit plateau. Pillar in good condition with evidence of maintenance in recent years. Spider centre open, but filled with debris. Flush bracket faces 224 (SW). All sight holes plugged. Spectacular and long views in all directions.

Superb views east over to the Moray and Cromarty Firths. Car park on the A835 is the usual start point, takes you up and over An Cabar, which should attract some points, but sadly not:-( Then it's a lovely high level walk with excellent 360 views. The trig is partially protected by a low wall of stones and is in good condition. Return via Tom A'Choinnich and then following the Allt a Gharbh Bhad down off the hill was an interesting variation.

Well bagged my first munro today. Was good weather and so decided to tackle Ben Wyvis with mate Richard. Great walk up although tiring. Very windy at the top as you would expect. Was prepared though. Trig had top 4 inches visible so managed a pic or 2. Best views I've seen so far in my trigpointing days. :) Added a few extra pics as there were none here.

Not much to see

second visit (the first being in much more pleasant weather) Pre trig days so no FB or GR logged. Extreme weather at the summit requiring some expert navigational skills - thanks Bro. Certainly did not hang about at the summit, just enough time to pull out the camera and grab the pic.

All I could see was the top 12" or so of the pillar due to thick snow on the summit. No view either due to thick cloud. All that slog for nothing!

Funny day, walked 6 miles out of Strath na Sealga, hitched to Garbat, went up the hill in a shower, that was torrential for 4 hours, dried off in the Garve Hotel over a high tea, waiting for the bus back home. Oh the days of cheap busses, gone now. A very popular hill, occasionally threatened by a "funny peculiar"
