We were last on this ridge several years ago. On that day, Julie had a nasty fall on Binnein Mor in winter conditions, and was lucky to escape with a few fractures.
We returned to the scene of that accident, the NNE ridge of Binnein Mor, this was to be our entry on to the main ridge and the 8 Munros beyond. And for Wilson the Beardie our 1st Munro of the day (Binnein Mor) would be his 200th. Great scrambling on this ridge to the summit, made all the better by the fantastic weather we would get all day.
Our biggest ascent day ever in the hills was made so much easier by the unexpected weather (MWIS) once again was way of the mark.
