I wondered if the green nuts were as a result of the bum slide

Brilliant report MW :thumbup: Cant beat a bit of bum sliding on the descent :lol: Loving the pic of Rudolph.

I think i'll have to get joined up with a Glasgow group and get that Munro tally of and running, been sticking to ones I've done already and smaller hills after my Beinn Ime catastrophe :lol:

Quite possibly.. although Graham's nuts had a hint of mustard too (what's that all about?) :o

Not allowed to take her on club meets. She had a great 6 mile run on the Saturday though, up to my fave haunts... :D

Sorry, late in replying, but a cracking and entertaining report in all respects including all of the replies and banter! :D 8) Green nuts and bum hops, the mind boggles. :)

Hi MW,

Superb report and fantastic photo's..................looks to have been a really good day out..............I take it with your nursing experience you were able to give some valuable medical advice and input for Graham and his green nuts.

Best regards.............B

Amazing photos! Cant believe that herd of deer just lay there, how cool! I've had a few wee shots at bum hopping too but only on very short bursts of snow as I am positive I wouldnt be able to stop! great fun though :lol: I would love to do ones as covered in snow as that but I dont have crampons and need more experienced walkers with me too. :( never mind, fab report and brilliant photos. well done! :clap:
