I have to confess to being Ketzster's dad, but I think this was quite an achievement as well as completely mad.
Now I am planning a long three nighter for myself and Mrs. Crymnast, but I doubt it will be as long as this was.

Nicely done, and a bit of an epic :D . I have a vague notion to try this at some point, although I don't know if I'd make it. The two outliers at the eastern end would seem to be the real sting in the tail. Impressive stuff.

Epic indeed. :clap: Don't know how you managed to keep going through the tiredness. 10 in one outing has to be a record? :eh:

It was something I had always wanted to do. Maybe it was because it was where it all started for me, I don't know! But if you get the opportunity then go for it-it's an amazing day out and looking back now I wish I could be there going through it all again.

The last two make it a harder. I thought about going the other way but then Mullach nan Coirean would be a killer too. You know what it's all like though-you're a lot more experienced than I am! But I would definitely go for it :D
