This was a day i was looking forward to since alans said he was goin back with jb likes a beer,savagealice and rockhopper but since i am just a novice munroer alans was a bit worried it wold be to much for me as i had only done 2 munros until now . We meet up at 8.30am at allt na reigh carpark and began to head up at nice pace but as we got higher task of the day started to seem like mission impossible for me anyway as we had to take a few stops on the way up to catch my breath and began to think i had bitten off more than i could handle but with help from the other 4 i carried on determend to finish what was an excellent day and take my tally to 4 munros. thanks to sherpa alans ,jb likes a beer,savagealice and rockhopper for a great day...
