Re: Bynack More on a Sunny Decembers day

Some crackin' photo's so thanks for sharing. :clap:

As a lover of winter walking it is such a disappointment to see such a lack of snow on the Cairngorm massif considering it's height.

However, looked like you had a great day out in a stunningly beautiful part of the country.. 8)

Re: At last, a sunny day!

Great effort !

For me the views from the summit are in the top 5 views out of all the Munro's and it looks like you had a belter with the sea lochs looking like glass.

Superb.

Re: To A' Mhaighdean and Ruadh Stac Mor by Canoe

WOW.. Just WOW !!

This is a special place when visited on foot, but from the water it must have been incredible. What a fabulous report.

The logistics and planning which must have gone into this expedition must have been staggering.

Well done to every one of you, and thank you so much for sharing.

Re: Fifth Summit Foiled at Bridge of Orchy

Good effort in getting the 4 done, especially Mhanach as it is it defo the big prize in that area. :clap: I managed the 5 the week before you and my route looks like it was te opposite direction to yours. I did Dorain first, then on to Mhanach to get the outlier done whilst I was still fresh. Then c...

Re: Ample time to bag a Corbett & a cheesy wee Graham

Hey, Climbed pretty much your exact route yesterday so thanks for the inspiration from your report. Was knee deep snow from about half way up Beinn Each which was fun (apart from the fact I'm not hill fit due to lockdown II) When got on the shoulder of Chaise the wind was brutal (buffeting me all ov...

Re: Grow a mo', save a bro', climb a (Mun)'ro?

Great post and sounds like you are enjoying getting into the mountains. In terms of advice around your knees I find walking poles definitely help take the weight off your knees on the descent so would suggest you could look at buying some. I believe they take around 30% of the impact weight off your...

Re: Liathach butterflies

Nice pics. What an amazing mountain Liathach is, and Torridon is such a beautiful area. We took the bypass path last time we climbed it, as the wind was buffeting us all over the place on the ridge so we opted for safety first in the lee of the wind. The bypass path was horrible though and I would h...

Re: Beinn Alligin not so alone!

Did these in winter and from my experience on the day easier route was talking in the Munro's first and then ascending over the horns last.. More ascent on the horns than descent which in winter makes more sense. However, I don't think it matters which way you do the circuit as it is a truly breath ...

Re: Failure on first solo on Meall Garbh

Hey, It is great that you are getting out into the mountains, so please do not see this as a failure, more a success that you reach the summit of 1 as each mountain we climb throws up their own challenges. :clap: The mountains will still be there for next time, and you will enjoy the ones you didn't...

Re: Let one go to find the meaning of life

What a sobering story. We bailed at the same point last winter. It appears to be such a benign mountain in the summer but looks like she turns into a Munro eater in the winter ! First winter walk always takes you by surprise with the extra time, much more energy burned, and the extra gear you need t...

Re: Liathach - Wow, hope the photo's do it justice

Wow.

What a day you guys had, and what a mountain to have an inversion on. 8)

Litahach is one beast of a mountain but she is also easily tamed.

Well done an an excellent report with some fantastic pictures :clap: :clap:

Second Munro Round - Cheating or not cheating??

Hi, I am on the brink of compleating my first round of Munro's, but I wanted to get a general idea from all my fellow walkers about my second round (only 2 to go with them pencilled in for 10/11/19). However, over the years whilst on my way to my first compleation I have climbed quite a few Munro's ...

Sgurr A' Ghreadaidh and Sgurr A' Mhadaidh - Sunday 29/09/19

Hi everyone. I am currently planning to travel over to Skye and attempt my final 2 Munro's on this famous Isle if anyone would like to keep me company. I am ideally looking for someone with Skye experience but I will have my rope/ harness / dangly bits etc.. anyway. This will be weather dependant as...
