Ring of Steall from the top car park: minced across the river and didn't push too hard up An Gearanach (1.01), ok on ridge to SCC (1.21), enjoyed the next bit until the slog up Am Bodach (1.42), feeling OK over Sgurr an Iubhair (1.57) and along the ridge but running out of steam up Sgurr a'Mhaim (2.19) and quads seizing up halfway down - glad to get to the river (2.51) and then drag myself back to the carpark. Tired but not dead on my feet at the end. Still more old git than mountain goat on the technical descents but feeling a bit more confident overall. Great day to be out: mild and not much wind, only one brief shower on Am Bodach and some intermittent cloud on the second half of the ridge.
