This is the video to go with the impending??? trip reports coming from the rest of the crew who bravely walked into the rain and cloud....and then cowardly dropped back down after 2 Munro's on the south Cluanie Ridge :( (Apart from the brave but totally mad Graeme, Polly and Thomas who carried on to do the full 7 :shock: ).
But hey, it was a blast as usual and what we have come to expect weather- wise on these meets, and by the state of some of the hangovers, some were lucky to do 2 Munro's! :sick:

Absolutely brilliant Mountainstar :D :D :D The weather may not have been kind to us but the whole day was just fantastic and yes, considering the 'bug' that some seemed to have on Saturday morning it's quite an achievement to have done 2 Munros. I did however find it a bit strange that the bug seemed to disappear once we were all sat in the Cluanie Inn :o lol

Great performance by Polly, Graeme and Thomas continuing in those conditions. :thumbup:

Love the video, I'll certainly look back at the meet-up videos a lot when I'm stateside.

Cracking video... :D

To be honest I think you lot were a bit rude; Monty and I were waving at you from the Sisters for a good five minutes and none of you had the decency to wave back :lol:
