Did wonder if you might be in here..... kudos to Kyle for getting all the way round ages before me, I gave up trying to go at your pace and didn't get down till after 6.30 pm and I was fair scunnered to say the least. A cracking day out even if I need an adrenalin boost to get onto the first ridge from Cruachan to Stob Diamh. A 900 ft drop at the side of a snowy 2ft ledge sure makes you tread carefully.
Think I did well to duck away from Kyle's snowball throws as well............
Will get my own report done later on.....

Glad you had a great day. Did you and your group make the climb on the Sunday?

As for Sunday it was a mixed response, some went home, 4 went to do the next 2 munros and I decided to lounge around in Oban resting up and reading the papers. Didn't think my legs would have carried me up another 2 but the guys that went up reckoned I'd have been ok. Just need to do them another fine day....
Hope Kyle has been bragging to his schoolmates and teachers............
