My walks on The Devils Ridge and The Ring Of Steall from Glen Nevis
We started at the car park and started climbing at 8 and passed a sign saying "beware danger of death"
we walked on a very stony path to the rope bridge and a waterfall i had the choice of going over rocks or taking the rope bridge, i picked the rope bridge then my dads friend Mark had to come over and he had walking sticks, so he picks to throw them over and the end of a stick came off and landed in the water and it sunk, we never seen it again.
We got to the waterfall and we were walking over rocks beside the waterfall.
We came down from the waterfall and went down over a bit of bog and we started climbing again.
I got to a small white cairn and i was kinda over the clouds and i started climbing again.
I got to the top of the first hill in about 2 hours and i had to wait on my brother and my dad because they were going slow. (An Gearanach 3,221ft/982m)
We walked along to the ridge where me and my brother had to be roped over the rocks we came down from there and started climbing again.
I got to the top of the other hill (Stob Coire a'Chairn 3,218ft/981m)
We had came down that one and went over a bit of a ridge and got to the next munro. We had alot of scambling all the way to the top!
We got to the top of the 3rd munro (Am Bodach 3,385ft/1032m)
We came down there and came up to a cancelled munro now a munro top but we never stayed long up there (Sgurr an Lubhair 3,284ft/1001m)
We came down and started climbing The Devil's Ridge me and my brother took the by-pass path at that bit my dad went over the rock and my dads friend felt like doing it twice.
We got to the top of the last munro of the day (Sgurr a'Mhaim 3,606ft/1099m)
We were climbing down the hill and a rescue helicopter landed on top of Ben Nevis i dont know why but it landed twice so... i dont know
We got to the bottom of the hill and walked back to the car park to get the car drive back to the corner bit so We could pick up my brother and dads friend!

Looks like you got a great day for it. I was on Sgurr a' Mhaim a few weeks ago and liked the look of the Devil's Ridge but my pal is recovering from ankle injury so we didn't go any further. :D
