School hillwalking club

Hello! I am looking for advice. I am a school teacher and I was thinking of starting a hillwalking club for pupils, maybe a few munros a year. I don't hold any mountaineering qualifications. Do I need qualifications? I am reasonably experienced, experienced enough to lead a walk up Ben Lomand etc. H...

Re: Mont Blanc revisited - the icing on the cake

Great report and photos. Well done on staying on the summit for 20 minutes. We found it far too cold and regret only taking a couple of photos.

Only a few of KM in it. However getting off and on at Corrour gives you 70 minutes more walking time.

Grey Corries from Corrour Station

Hello, I was wondering if anyone has walked the Grey Corries from Corrour Station? I was hoping to do it tomorrow as the forecast looks nice but worried about time. There is only 7 hours between the first train in and the last train out! Hoping someone has managed it and i'll give it a bash. I am us...

Re: Mont Blanc

Sounds like you have good experience all ready. Why not find a partner rather pay for a guide? We used the BMC Alpine Skills DVD to learn the theory of crevasse rescue and hired a guide for one day to go through the practicalities of crevasse rescue. We then climbed Mont Blanc by ourselves.

Lairig Nan Lunn access

Does anyone know if the road between Pubil and Kenknock farm is open for civilian traffic? I missed Beinn Heasgarnich previously so would like to do it quickly from the top of the road on the same day as the Loch Daimh munros. I have heard that the road can sometimes be in a poor condition but its h...

I've did the 3 and managed to get the 18:35 train back and was standing on the platform for a nearly 2 hours waiting on it.

Saying that I got sleeper that arrived at 08:59.

Depending on your plans you can jump on sleeper at Dalmuir.



Cheers!

Loch Ossian Munros

Hello, I was wondering if anyone has managed to do the 3 Loch Ossian Munros in the time between the first and last train? Thinking of doing them on the 2nd of July. The train gets to Corrour at 11:21 and last train departs at 20:31. So that gives 9 hours of walking. Steve Fallon gives an estimated t...

Re: Chamonix ridges and Aravis snowshoes

A very enjoyable report! Thanks for posting. Stepping out onto the arete from the Aiguille du Midi is an unforgetable experience.

Re: Mont Blanc via the Gouter Refuge

Congratulations to both of you. :clap: An excellent report, with many good tips and good descriptions for those who fancy it in the future. I did it several years ago with a guide (I did not know anyone who was competent enough to do it with at the time) Since then I have been to the Alps every yea...
