Thanks, I've used it as an approach to the winter routes on Beinn Ime a few times. It is pretty tough going with a full pack so it has left an impression!

Back with a photo shortly...

Short on photos, I don't take many, so this is an easy one - from my walk last weekend. What's the corrie directly below me?

I think it is the corrie (marked as Coire Odhar on the 1:25000) between Ben Donich and The Brack.

Looking from somewhere (Cowal Way?)on the slopes of Cnoc Coinnich, which was only the second hill I climbed in Scotland, back in around 1980... and apparently it has now been promoted to be a Corbett!
