Any one of those pics could have blown me away. One of your finest sets of photies yet Kev. I have often regretted not going for this one when I did Cruachan and Stob Diamh. This makes any regret vanish though as I know what I still have to look forward to.... hopefully! Got to say I'm surprised you didn't pocket the remains though.....

Fantastic narrative with all the usual fluff (I'm thinking of my own reports-not your's!) stripped away- very much like the cadaver you found
As for the photographs, (okay to borrow one of your favourite words?)-sublime
Very jealous of you having the experience and the male accoutrements to take on a hill alone in the Winter- must have been fab!
PS One thing that did surprise me.... the fact that the above mentioned were still allowed to stay attached after you said 'there, there' to your wife

Yes that sounds a bit closer to the truth
I trust there was definitely no patting involved either!!! (yes I did say patting )
