A cracking effort, with some fine shots to boot 8)
Have done similar walk- without C-a-R, left Tulaichean and headed up the front of M-n-C heading for Beinn Iutharn Mhor
the legs were burning like hellfire

total wave of empathy :thumbup: felt exactly the same :lol:
Here is a shot of the same cornice on GT
