Re: Quinag (#222) - a Corbetts' compleation camp

Another excellent report. I like the clustered and stacked bar charts coloured deep sky blue and orange/red sunset. You've made a lot of use of July, I see. Epic journey(s) that must have brought you a lot of great experiences. Thank you sharing the write-ups! All thoroughly enjoyed.

Re: An Cliseam - a tale of two Mullas

Some lovely photos there with the cloud in all the right places. Been up and down Cliseam in winter but I'd definitely now consider a return for this horseshoe, though maybe minus the road walk. Those hills further west don't look too bad either.

Re: Testing time in the Mamores: or bionic woman at large

A good read with zest for the hills and rediscovery of hearing.

Re: Facing some fears in Torridon

I probably read that you were anxious about scrambling in a previous report but it still came as a surprise in this one. I guess I make an assumption that someone who regularly covers long distances across the hills just takes everything in their stride. I think it is quite healthy to be apprehensiv...

Re: Two Assynt Munros (and a Corbett)

Twenty years sounds like a comfortable period of time for your campaign if you can do such long walks. Breabag was enough for me last July but I was feeling quite cautious back then.

Re: Pressendye with another human!

We went up the northern half of your route six years ago and really enjoyed it for its views of the surroundings and ease of access. It's also a name that seems to trip off the tongue though that's a matter of opinion, of course. It seems also to have been the subject of a name change though and mus...

Re: Straight line walking

Surely in walking a chord length of 78.5km they will have deviated from a straight line by approximately 6371*(1-COS((ACOS((6371*6371*2-78.4*78.4)/(2*6371*6371))/2)))*1000 = 121m at the mid-point? Or should that be (6371 - SQRT(6371*6371-POWER(6371*SIN(((78.5/40075)*2*PI())/2),2)))*1000 = 120m? I n...
