This was the first peak I did on my expedition leader's course from JSMTC Ballachulish some 29 years previously and my wife Shelley's first venture into Scottish hillwalking!

Shelley wondering where the top is....
Route was as described - nothing to add there - and it was my first use of my Garmin Forerunner 405 as a navigation aid. I had a Garmin Nuvi as back up, which did have the track loaded on but it ran out of power after c. 3 hours.
