Congratulations Pete, that ascent looks fantastic and you grabbed some cracking shots of the views. What a way to reach the ton - well done :D

As for cracking the shin toward the summit - there's no pain quite like it.... hope the summit tourists were wearing ear plugs :lol:

Great report PeteR. What a way to reach your 100. We are still to complete the CMD, must get round to it soon though.

Cheers once again on a fine report.

Cracking report and on such an excellent day! I'm hoping to be up there in a couple of weeks, hope to get weather like you but doubt it!! :shock: :( Very useful to see the amount of winter snow left in the summits/corries though, gives me an idea of what is feasible in 2 weeks- thanks! :D :D
