Iain, the south ridge is definitely a possibility. Here's hoping Graeme got his weather order in on time.

Polly, i ate some of those midgies in a brutal revenge attack. They taste better than smidge, that's for sure.

Day started off badly, slept through my 3am alarms.

I could have helped you out with that....

Big walk that, pity you never camped out at Loch Etctachan, great spot amongst the mountains :)
