Re: Aonach Eagach E-West defeated by Pinnacles (pure FEAR)

We made the mistake of trying this today 21st October in the rain

Well there you go, return in the dry. The rest of your post is full of sweeping generalisations that wouldn't be out of place in the Daily Mail.

Re: River Crossings Fisherfield Six

I've done the Loch a' Braoin approach a few of times. Still a couple of burn crossings but they are far less troublesome.

Re: Scrambling Boots and shoes

You don’t need anything special unless you’ve been reading too many magazine articles?

Re: Munro Trig Points

Ben more assynt , the summit is the further away cairn that’d be difficult to spot in poor vis. Probably worth visiting both to get the different view points though

Re: First pair of Winter walking boots

This also happens in the other three seasons. People slip, there are rocks all over the place, they hit their head and die. I've know this to happen personally (okay, 1 degree of separation) to hugely experienced lifelong hillwalkers, sensible well-equipped people in a large party. Why not year-rou...

Re: Queueing for summit selfies

When I and a friend did Tower Ridge we stopped at the top for a Mars bar and then trotted off down the pony track without going near the cairn . At least you don't have to queue to get on Tower Ridge....not yet, anyway... You've not been stuck behind folk on the eastern traverse then. I'm glad it w...

Re: Queueing for summit selfies

Bad weather beat me and my mate off Ben Nevis a few hundred feet from the summit a few years ago. Although we climbed via the tourist route we would have booted the a**e of any Climbing God who sneered at us for doing it the easy way, had we made it to the summit. I'm not entirely certain where tha...

I’ll have a think , they seem the most obvious. Donny Campbell made the moruisg error.
Once you get to the Donald’s it’s anyone’s guess at times which tussock marks the summit.

Re: First pair of Winter walking boots

By the way, Caberfaidh keeps posting these helmet photos. Don't fall for it, they are ski helmets and you will sweat like a pig in it due to the insulation.

Re: Mount Keen on a bike

I always take a small coil lock. The weight is negligible and its a reasonable enough quality lock to prevent all but the dedicated.

I do know of an incident where an unlocked bike was stolen on a popular hill walk.
