Having only done this circuit a few weeks ago I'm glad to see other walkers enjoying it, too :D :D We took almost 13 hrs to do it, but the heat was enormous... And there is nowhere to refill your bottles once on the ridge. I guess the conditions you had were better (even if you missed some of the views in the mist).
The tractor in the first photo is still parked in the same position :lol: :lol: :lol:

Cheers guys :thumbup: Yeah it sure was tough but I do enjoy an epic :) I did all the Fannichs in a day last month and this was just about as tough. Definitely hills i'd return to do again , although will be using the boat next time :D
