More than me this year for sure. Did these 2 when it was a bit icy but no snow and agreed that the Dothaidh is very boggy indeed. But not as boggy or even as steep as Ben Ime.

Doesn't Marley complain about frozen paws at all..... sure you can probably get doggy boots .... :lol:

Hey Brian, I read your report on the Creise.....sounds an interesting adventure! :D
He is still going strong, we are waiting for the frosts to come in for a week or two...then maybe tackle Ime as you suggested, hopefully the bogs will freeze solid! :lol: Here's hoping anyway! :wink:
Dog boots :lol: Marley would probably chew them off after a hundred meters! :lol: He has plenty of fur to keep him toasty! :D
Thanks again!

Lovely ridge shots :wink:

Thanks Bob...it's nice when you find a fellow climber to take a group shot! :D
The ridge was fab, could have stayed and watched for ages, the cloud just rolled in and out which made it almost magical! :D

Tremendous stuff from the wee man. His enthusiasm has no bounds. A real Mountainman in the making. Great stuff Dave. :D

p.s. Hope the wee guys wrist gets better soon so he can get back out in the snow :D

Oh dear a broken wrist doesn't sound too good.... was he trying to demonstrate his scrambling skills to his mates ....

A broken wrist hasn't stopped Fiona from getting out recently, despite needing an operation so I'm sure Wee Guy will take it all in his stride..... :wink:
