Didn't do a Bear Grylls in the desert and use what ever fluid he had left I hope :lol:


I don't think Bear Grylis is clever enough to try what GLW did with that buff :lol:

Nice report Gammy and Alan. Love the photos

Sheer bliss,10.30am,two munro"s under the belt,and all thats left now is the descent back down to the car,and on the way down we past a few walkers coming up,sweat running of them,blowing bubbles,trying to suck in the warm air,faces red with all the effort,asking"did you turn back because its to warm".................................no we say,2 done & on the way home.........................."Ice cold on Mullach.


Cool Dudes :D :D
