Meall a Bhuiridh: NE Face

Starting on skis from the top of the White Corries chairlift at Glencoe, skin up the right hand trail to just before the bottom of the Cliffhanger chairlift. Turn SSE and head for the bottom of the Fly Paper ski run. Attach coutteau and traverse over the Fly Paper lower part and zig-zag up the adjacent corrie. Turn due South and reach the shoulder. Turn W and pick a trail through the rocks and boulders until the lower plateau is reached. Remove skis and climb to the top of the lower peak of Meall a Bhuiridh (1087m)

Ski back down the top part of the Fly Paper and turn W for 75-100m until you come to the top of the raison d'etre of the day - short section (100m) of S4 on the NE wall. Ski to the point where you meet the bottom of the Fly Paper and return to ski on down to the chairlift. Ski under lift and go directly on to the end of the snowline. Skis off and walk off the mountain back to the White Corries car park. Fin.
