Beinn Heasgarnich

JPM club. Niall, Ana, Francesca, Samriti, Umesh. Wetter than the showery forecast. Summit in low cloud but broke up enough for some views but the summit was clear after we'd descended - always the same! The sun did come out on the way down and out was quite lovely. The route wasn't near as dodgy or ...

Carn Liath & Braigh Coire Chruinn-bhalgain

JPM club. First outing without Ken who retired two weeks ago. Niall. Ana. Umesh. Samriti. Ashra (I think). Low cloud. Broke up at times for good views. Drizzle became more persistent in later afternoon. A long day and a long drive. Had to charge Leaf there and back. Umesh had a drone which produced ...

An Stuc at third attempt

Previous attempts prevented by white-out on Beinn Ghlas and then extremely windy and stormy conditions on route to Ben Lawers. In contrast, today couldn't have been better. Lovely sunny day. Bit breezy which itself was warm at times. Plenty of time spent sitting in the sun admiring the landscape at ...

Schiehallion. Aborted attempt

Jpm club. Ken's last one as leader because he is retiring. Didn't make it to the top. Made it to 960m and turned back. Extremely windy. Quite a lot of snow on the ground and being blown. More moved in. Most people we met had also turned back. Only two guys said they'd made it. Gave Svet and Reyna a ...

Beinn Chabhair

JPM club. Only 5 of us: Ken, Svet, Vlad, Ingrid, me. Not too cold. Visibility wasn't very good on way up but it broke up near summit. Lovely views. Colin Prior photo standard. Club's 200th Munro. Snow coverage was wide but not deep. Still needed crampons. Though we left at 09:00, we were last off th...

Ben More and Stob Binnien

JPM. Ken, Bartosz, Jack, Vlad & Ingrid, Emma & Mark. Another beautiful day. Windy at height. Dry. Sunny. Some clouds but none on these two. Fantastic views. Looking south was amazing because the sun shone through a haze which accentuated the profiles of the hills. Marvelous. Even the sunset ...

Ben Lawers, Beinn Ghlas on the way to An Stuc

JPM club. Redid these two on the way to An Stuc but we didn't reach An Stuc. It was very windy and quite difficult wailing conditions and we have up once Ben Lawers was reached.

Beinn Dubhchraig

JPM club. Ken, Alan, Philipe, Christine, Emma, Vlad. It's been hot and sunny for days but the weather broke on Saturday. Forecast was bad but actual weather wasn't as bad. Very little wind. It was very light drizzle in the morning which was refreshing. It got more persistent later and developed into...

Meall Glas

JPM club. 10 of us. Some new people. Absolutely amazing day. Hot and sunny. Only wore one layer all day. Plus shorts! Very light breeze. First time with new boots. Scarpa fabric boots. My leather Scarpas turned out to be too small hence the pain and discomfort. New ones are size 8. £240 incl differe...

Ben Chonzie JPM family day

Approx 30 people. We filled the car park! Fantastic day's weather. Hot (yes, really!) and sunny. Even converted trousers to shorts. Visibility was a little hazy. Breezy on top. Straightforward walk. Near enough 90% on a track.

Beinn Ghlas whiteout

With JPM club. Ken, Alan, Batosz and Svet. Intention had been to do An Stuc alone from a different starting point but Ken decided plan B from the NTS car park was best even if it meant not being able to do An Stuc. Lots of snow! Lovely. Cold though. I had 5 layers on incl jacket. Cloud was low and w...

Ben Vorlich white-out

JPM club. Just Ken Milne, Alan McKechnie and myself. Weather was fairly mild and certainly not as cold as my copious amount of clothing made it look like! Complete snow cover further up. Although not absolutely necessary, we used our crampons to make it slightly easier to walk on some of the icier s...

Sgiath Chuil

With JPMorgan club. Set out to do this one with Meall Glas but decided to skip it because it was pretty miserable when we reached the summit of Sgiath Chuil. Grass was long and wet and slippy. Weather was meant to clean up but not up top!
