The forecast was for showers and cloud, so I dressed appropriately, however, this never happened, and the sun was beating down on us all afternoon!
The ascent was fairly direct, and unrelenting as we gained height very quickly. As we got higher and higher, we kept seeing "summits", but as the reports said, that there were a lot of false summits. We had to do a bit of scrambling too, which I enjoy!
The top was a lovely large plateau, with what seemed like a mini loch at the top, with stunning views down loch lomond and over to Ben Lomond.
I got some great pictures piping, having someone taking the pictures makes such a difference!
We chilled at the top, and reluctantly left due to me needing to get back to Glasgow to play football.
Near the bottom, we discovered the path we should have followed, which would have avoided bogs at the start.
Brillant day out, and another ticked off the list

I am just enjoying climbing and playing. I would like to do them all eventually, but only if I am still enjoying it, which I know I will. I am trying to gain a following so I can start fund raising for charity, so that is motivation. Any help spreading my facebook page is appreciated. I know there is a guy who has played on quite a lot of the summits, including the InPin, but not sure if ALL have been done.
