Hi James,

Sorry I've missed you on previous outings :(

This is a smashing report and your photographs are fab. Did you and Alan have the crampons on for a fair bit of the walk?

Glad to see that your return to the hills was a good one :thumbup:

Hi Polly
We put the crampons on about 20 mins before the 1st summit but to be honest we probably could have got away without them but it was a good set of hills to get used to them, Had to try them out at some point :lol:
