Brilliant stuff Gammy! I could look at those photos all day and all night. Some seriously airy shots in there. Actually, I don't know what is more disturbing - some of the positions you were in or the fact that in one shot you look dangerously close to showing a bit of "workie's bum"! :lol: :lol:

Haven't done the AE ridge yet as I am under strict instructions from Debbie not to do it until she is also in attendance. I'll make sure she reads your report too! :lol:

Cheers HighlandSC we all had a fantastic day,would encourage anyone if they are nervous of heights & exposure to get help & go have a great day out.

The bribe will be well worth it

OMG! Luckily Aonach Eagach is still far away for me. I think you're smiling too much in the pictures, or are they grimaces of fear? Well done all of you!
