Yep, well done indeed BC! As for the weather, I have no doubts whatsoever that 2013 will be wall to wall sunshine and balmy temperatures. :think:

Congratulations on the 200 :D A great achievement. The finishing line is in sight :D I seem to recall Vorlich was tougher than I had expected when I did it. Might go back one day to see if it's gotten any easier :lol:

Absolutely Fantastic to hear you've done 200 ! :clap: I'm just a novice and take my hat off to you and much respect . I tried to do Vorlich and Stuc a week after you but turned back not too far from top of Stuc as the party I was with didn't want to risk it so I had no choice due to fog. I'm going back again this Saturday to attempt alone but have done my homework so here's hoping. :crazy:

Once again well done and great report. :D
