Then it was the crazy pinicles (i always thought you had to go straight over them but mike took me just to the right and upwards so just missing the very top. 30 mins Aprox all the technical stuff was finished and all we needed to do was to climb our way to the second munro of the day again as you know Sgorr nam fiannaidh. Once on top of the second munro i was so chuffed that i decided NOT to do the COWARDS WAY. Looking back to the ridge again the GLEN COE side was clear but the Levern side was still covererd in Clag.from the summit we turned directl left and heading for the Clachaig road where it meets the A82 AND what a job that was You were literally surfing the stones (Great fun but bloody hard on your legs) i have a fealing that the desent from top to bottom must be in the top 10 as having the longest continious drop. Eventually back down on the road Mike told me to go to the Clachaig and sit there while he tries to hitch back to his van (oh yes sorry but i had gone up by train) within 30 mins he was back to pick me up and took me to FW. Anyway folks from a very happy chappy Would i do it again well that is a definate wait for it YES YES YES would i do it again with a guide mmmmmm I would like to think that i could cope without a guide but only when the weather is good Possibly next summer. Anyway here are some photo's i took
