There can't be many folks? who have journeyed over this mixed bag of tops in one trip.
The image of Garbh-bheinn, Clach Glas and Blaven from Marsco is very fine. To think that CG gets no mention on the OS 1:50,000 map. :)

This is an absolute stunner Malky, perfectly titled too, what an incredible campsite and what a fantastic sunrise, I'm sure you made the right choice in avoiding the snow crossing with that extra weight in the backpack. Incredible photos of a double day to make everyone on here jealous :clap:

Aye Malky, what a fine 2 dayer. Certainly different from the usual ascents. You do have a sense of adventure. Great photos too. Looking forward to read your report of the 2 Torridon corbets we did together with Graeme. Fantastic stuff. :clap: :clap:

Hmm, I recall skimming over this at the time but then getting distracted before I could summon up the words to make a post. Now I'm musing over routes for the Skye meet next month and a weekend in September I have banked for the hills, so thought this was more than worth a gratuitous bump! :lol:
