Dry overcast day. Strong winds. Approach from Inverlael through Gleann na Sguaib to the broad beallach between Meall nan Ceapraichean, Conna Meall and Bein Dearg. Very strong winds on the beallach. Tantalizing views of Coire Ghranda with a little sunshine on the water. Beinn Dearg in the clouds. Saved that one for a better day. Ascent of Meall nan Ceapraichean from the beallach (view from the head of Gleann na Sguaib). Track making was very exhausting in the deep snow with the gales coming directly from in front. Finally made it to the summit. Return by way of approach.
