Congratulations to all who have left walk routes this month, you're consistently making life harder and harder for us to choose!

Winner this month is Glen Affric (1x3) +4 -1 =4. Having read a few posts from Frogwell before, we knew we were in for some great photos, but the writing also had us in stitches. Deserved winner in our book, the low winter light in the photos led to some stunning shots.

Runner up goes to Borah Pk Independence Day in the land of the famous potatoes by Clach Liath. We had never even heard of this mountain before being in the States and all, but this looked like a cracking route with a bit of testing stuff to get your teeth in to. Thanks for introducing us to something slightly different.

Well done to both winners and to all who have left a report this month. Stay safe out on the mountains this December and if you haven't had a chance to finish your Christmas shopping off yet, we've got some cracking stocking fillers that won't break the bank.

Well done to both of you. Two great reports and superb pictures with both. I might not make it to Idaho, but I soon hope to be following in your footsteps Frogwell when I finally make it to Glen Affric :D

Worthy winners both of you :D :D

Well golly gosh, I didn't see that one coming to be honest. I read loads of reports that I thought were considerably more deserving and I didn't think my modest bribe would be nearly enough. I guess all the other bribers must be way cheaper than me. Yay recession!

Right, I'm off to see what bling webtogs have. Now I've been elevated to such star status I can't rightly be seen with the same gear as the proletariat, so I'm thinking a gold plated ice axe, or a jewel encrusted ear warming hat maybe. :D

Probably don't want to follow in my footsteps to be honest. I deleted my GPS track out of sheer embarrassment . I'd like to blame it on the drink, but alcohol gives me heartburn and I don't even bother with wine for cooking any more. I must have one leg shorter than the other or something. And which leg is shorter changes quite often it seems.
