Jesper and I heading for our first Corbett and second Munro - The Cobbler (Ben Arthur) followed by Beinn Narnain.
Decided to climb the Cobbler first and see how the time (and legs) are before returning via Beinn Narnain. After the Narnain boulders we head north-west up a small scramble between the North and Central peaks.
Great views south down the Firth of Clyde and a tantalising number of Munro's to the north, east and west.
The next challenge, the rock Pinnacle which is the true summit, not too difficult if you have a head for heads, wouldn't fancy it if it was wet, slippy or icy, as once you pass through the 'eye of the needle' the last part slopes outwards towards a big drop on to big rocks.
We descent The Cobbler to the north down the stepped path then up the slopes of Beinn Narnain over the boulderfield to the summit of our second Munro without too much trouble.
On the summit feeling fine, however the real killer for me was still to come after over-stretching some tendons, a long stoney descent with some small scrambles on tiring legs and hot knees. Another great day in the hills, no gain without pain so not looking forward to Tuesday and sore tendons, anyway my hill fitness is definitely increasing.
