One from a few weeks ago that I'd never got round to posting at the time. Met Kev post work at the Mhor 84 hotel with notions of doing Stob Breac and Stob a'Choin, but the weather and diminishing daylight quickly made it evident that the Corbett would not be happening this evening. However, we did manage to recce a decent ascent route of the Corbett that I would return to take full advantage of a couple of weeks later.

It's quite a steep old ascent in places!

At the summit - Kev isn't taking a leak despite how it looks!

Almost done - that'll be the way up Stob a'Choin then!
