pigeon wrote:Another Saturday comes around and this weeks trip is the Anoachs in the Nevis range.A couple of good reports on these during the week by gman and ChrisG gave us a good idea of what to expect.Charlie had invited a new member along to join our gang for this hike, a female would you believe :lol: :lol: .So we had to be on our best behaviour today,no swearing ,no dodgy jokes and most certainly no breaking of the wind :lol: (lucky Ian sat this one out then :lol: )So we scooted up the road and Diane,Charlie and myself set of up the path by the Steall falls at just after 8 bells.Forecast was good for the morning with snow and gale force winds later in the day,but hopefully we would be on our way down by the time that came in and in the end it turned out a great day,a wee shower as we got back to the car but nothing too bad.Diane did well bagging Munro number 66 and 67 for her(welcome back any time as long as she brings the homemade soup likes :wink: )and Charlie got some great pics and video from his first visit to these hills.Followed the WH route and basically the day could no really have worked out any better,i'll let the pics say the rest :thumbup:
P.S Kev,hope you're back with us soon mate ,you were missed today(honest) :wink:

Johnny Corbett wrote:As others have said great photos and the snow just tops it off. That descent is steep, we opted to go back over Aonach Beag rather than down it :crazy:
Aye it's pretty steep Johnny,the photos never really do it justice,would not like to come down there in the ice and snow :shock:
