Thanks Pigeon,

That was my original intention but after last Sunday, I'm more aware of the shorter days. I'll maybe wait and see how early we get up there.

Are you heading out this weekend? :D

Sounds good. We opted for the Narnain/Ime combo. Ben Ime was really straightforward although we had chosen the more direct, trickier ascent of Narnain. Enjoy :D
