Jeezo Gammy, what a stoater!!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Your photos are top notch there Willie but my faves are the snow caps. I would have traded in a kidney for some of that on A/E on Monday- tooooooo warm!!!

Brilliant idea starting super early too. As you said you were having a restless sleep, so why not???

Can't wait for Lochnagar now- more fun and frolics! Yippee!!! :lol:

I always like a good Mamores report :D And this is a good Mamores report :D Great photos too. This has to be one of my favourite areas. As has already been said, there isn't a bad hill in the Mamores :D

Not sure I would balance a lump of ice on my follically challenged bonce though. Could probably have done with on Sunday mind. Despite an almost similarly early start I managed to get roasted in the heat of the day :crazy:
