left house at 6 am an picked up wullie, arrived at glen nevis car park at 8.35 am, as soon as we got out the car the midges were terrible even Bear wasnt amused with them. a quick change then off we went, soon we appeared at the wire bridge, bear not to keen to cross this :( so we had to go up a bit to find a shallower bit to cross. not as shallow as i had hoped, wet boots from the start.. anyway on we went . made good time up an met a bunch of lads, who we got all the way round with..soon i made the top an after a short break we pushed on, finally i reached my hundredth :D after this the weather got worse specially when we got to the ridge and had a few hairy moments with the dog who is a stubborn git at somepoints when it involves climbing up somebits an shes not the lightest to lift.. we reached the last munro and then headed back down, it was an enjoyable day specially reaching my 100th.. and a big thanks to the guys that gave me a lift back to the car when we got to the road..

Well done on the 100th and on the whole RoS in fact. I was on Stob Ban and Mullach nan Coirean yesterday and we got stunning views across the whole Ring from the Mullach. Stunning stuff! As for stubborn hounds on dodgy ridges, been there done that. Never a good situation! :lol:

Wonderful stuff! A great walk for your 100th munro, and well done to bear too! The start of those classics that may challenge your dog, as it did my lab Ritchie. Not too rough for him, but did affect a little my own personal route, as an odd by-pass had to be used. It's a great day out on the Ring of Steall :wink: :D :D
