Re: Bagging the Mamores in a day

Very well done to the both of you.
Done a very similar route about 6 weeks back but under much better weather conditions. ☺

Makes for a tough day does that ridge.

Re: A North West Coast Fantasy - Sun, Sea, Sand...& Swimming

Fantastic trip Dooterbang. Great report and pics.

I really must get on my road bike more, it's the other toad users that scare me and stop me using as much as I should.

Re: 5+1 from Shenavall bothy

Hello Beech.

your correct, they are more than capable. only a few doggie paddle strokes were needed. We chose the widest part of river for crossing as it was slower flowing and most probably shallower.

I meant to comment on that cracking picture in your TR. The one with the Spanish Hikers heading for the summit. The zoomed one is a cracking fottie.
