Re: Wild camp on Mount Keen

@Alteknacker: I realized that sharing the size of a tent makes a huge difference! What was once stuck outside the backpack, can now we squeezed inside (resulting of multiple squashed biscuits, but it fits) I also removed some of my usual layers I take during colder days. Would love to get down to 10...

Wild camp on Mount Keen

To set up camp high on a mountain, watching the sun set over the horizon and be one with nature is one of my favourite parts of a mountain walk. It’s the freedom, the remoteness and sounds of the nature which gives me an instant calm and escape from the stresses of day to day life. It also takes the...

Largs-Kilbirnie-Lochwinnoch...over the hills

This report includes two different walks, but as the approach is similar, I thought it would be best to add them together Largs to Kilbirnie Distance 14.5km Time taken: 3:50h our_route.gpx Having lived in Largs for the past 25 years, walking over the hills from to Kilbirnie or Lochwinnoch had never ...

Re: My First Ever Wild Camp

I am glad you had such a great first experience! Had to laugh about the experience that the bag was heavy and the mountain looked steep... I think that everytime :lol: . The good thing is that at some point you get used to the weight. Well done for camping in heavy rain for 3 days... But your tent l...

Google photos suddenly don't show images in reports... Help

I have realized that some of my old reports don't show photos anymore (even though they were fine for years)
Does anyone has the same issue and know how to fix it ? I am guessing Google changed some privacy setting? :(

Re: The TROMIEndous start to 2020!

That sounded like a nice walk out. Doing a tarmac road first is a winner for me. Tarmac on the return always kills my legs. Who would destroy a cairn I wonder? Lol it needs to be rebuild I think :lol:

Wow what an area. :D :D Love the translation of the name 'scary horn'. That must have been fantastic! To get your stuff up by helicopter is brilliant. Amazing photos as well. Congratulations completing 4000 nders of Switzerland :clap:

Re: Bynack More and my guide to winter hiking

jmarkb: Great idea as well with doing a route the wrong way around! HalfManHalfTitanium: Good point about the wind direction and of course the avalanche forecast! Waterproof rucksack liner is another good one, I also have all my dry clothes in one. Ending in a crevasse gulp :shock: ...sounds scary!...

Bynack More and my guide to winter hiking

We were approaching the 810m mark just over 1km away from Bynack More, when we realized that a number of walkers ahead of us turned back. Getting closer to the final push to climb Bynack More, they weren't the only ones we encountered that day. My first thought was 'good on them' turn around when yo...

Re: Rise (and fall) of Sky(e)walker: Sgurr na Stri fail

This report made me laugh. How to teach yourself some lessons, the hard way. Been there too and those are the days you won't forget easily. Some great photos! Up for 48 hours without sleep... That's one I could not do

Re: Annapurna circuit Trek Nepal

Great :clap: :clap: I am surprised - and disappointed - that there aren't more Himalayan reports on WH. I've also had altitude toothache - in the alps. :( :( Antibiotics keep it at bay for quite a while, but in the end the only cure is an expensive root filling when you get home :( Poor you for hav...
