I had 8-hours-40, to the tarmac, but opted to for 9-hours-30 on account of that being the point I could take my pack off, and not have to put it back on.

Speak for yourself, you weren't the one carry a 5kg rock off the hill for someone else. :wink:

And I got your message about my flask; i'll give you a shout when i'm next up in Glasgow..
If you wouldn't mind giving it a wash out, that would be great;
2/3 week old tea dregs aren't really my cup of tea (sorry)

My appetite for AE has now grown after reading your story - I know it's a helluva journey but can't wait to walk this ridge myself.

:clap: great report, was up there a few weeks before you, it's great to tick it off the list, so great in fact that I'm doing it all over again in a fortnight!!! Your pictures really give a sense of perspective, and the cloud just adds to the atmosphere!!!
