Re: Favourite/ least favourite mountain

Favourite for the moment is BEM via Curved Ridge.
Least favourite is Ben Vorlich (Loch Earn) via usual path up.

I don't tend to do hills. I prefer to do routes rather than hills. So I keep doing the same hills, but by different routes. And not always to the summit. I'm a weirdo :wtf:

Re: Snow on the Carn Mor Dearg Arete?

I was there on Saturday (May 11th) and it was fine. Some thin patches here and there but nothing to worry about.
Have a great time :thumbup:

Re: Mental face

Good stuff :wink:
I had a mini-epic myself up S'a'C not so long ago. This report brought back memories. It's a nice scramble if you're mentally prepared for some awkward moves. If not though like you said, it's a bit mental :thumbup:

Re: Asian import gear

I bought a Naturehike Cloud Up 2 person tent from AliExpress a few years back. £48 total including shipping from China. It's a great tent, super light, but the quality is lacking a wee bit (it's had loose stitching and frayed material on the storm flap of the entrance zip since new). It's a cheap kn...

Re: Beinn Dorain - wonderful waterfalls and wintry winds

I think images 0015 to 0018a are very impressive - they look so dramatic. Driving up the A82 on a clear enough day, it's like a primal instinct to climb Beinn Dorain. And great job ploughing on up to the summit in those conditions :clap: I'd say that drink was well earned. Great report! Brilliant st...

Re: Zig Zag (ing) to Broad Gully

Brilliant video. You guys make quite the duo when it comes to presenting the mountains :thumbup:. The zigzags is such a cool route. It looks impossible from the car when you drive up past it - such an intimidating sight, and I remember feeling a bit concerned when I did it. Since then I've been up B...

Re: A Wee Shortie on (and off) the Watershed

This adventure defines the word grandiose!

I'm hoping to do the L...

Thanks hughdivers1975
The downclimbs were exciting with full concentration required, but still extremely enjoyable :thumbup:
It was a very satisfying adventure all-round - I highly recommend.

Re: Horns of Alligin Winter Traverse - Wild Weather in Torri

Good effort and indeed a worthwhile plan B. Ive done it a couple of times in differing conditions and is up there with one of my favourite days in the hills. Have also been luckier and done Deep South Gully....very atmospheric with towering walls. Makes you feel very small. If you get the chance - ...

Well, kevsbald. When the wife allows me not 1 but 2 nights away, I really have to go all-out and take the steaks and single malt route :thumbup:
Will hopefully get away for a bothy trip soon. Maybe we'll see you there :lol: :wink:
