Then up for our two weeks in God's country - can't wait!!!
I see, can't decide whether to put my slr in the rucksack on Skye - I probably will as it is worth significantly less than yours lol
And no I didn't get the camera... was all raring to go and decided to leave it a couple of weeks till we were next in Kendal.... and then a gas bill came... and then a water bill came... and then I realised a £600 shortfall in the wedding fund. So it was just a new lens for now - got the 15-85 canon lens though, which will be good with the 7D when i save up

I have been looking at doing it in a day, but if weather like this was guaranteed, I think I would want the overnight experience. Some stunning photos - cheers

Thanks ML. Andrea likes the Nepal suggestion especially after she read your report.

Thanks. We met a few on the ridge doing a recce for a one day traverse but when we told them how much it added to the experience and why would you want to rush it, I think they may change their mind.

Thanks. Fantastic experience. Unfortunately there are big sections of the traverse with no pics - we were too focused on staying on.

Hope you get some good weather for your Caingorm trip. Just think, you still got Skye to look forward to
