Thanks very much tough hill indeedCatoTheYounger wrote:As a fellow Graham lover I applaud your achievement. Nice one, Graham's FTW!! Congrats on climbing/enduring 100 of those little buggers.
Thanks, yeah the sun was going down by this point and shined up the Grahamscottishkennyg wrote:Well done on the century Johnny, looked a good day. Liked the image of the trig point (no5).
Cheers Graeme, took the opportunity with the weather to get it doneGraeme D wrote:True to your word - you said you'd hit the century before the year was out!
Cheers, couldn't have put it better myselflomondwalkers wrote:Congrats on the century JC I've found most of the Grahams I've done to be alot tougher than most of the Munros I've done Theres something sadistically satisfying about plodding your own way up a hill, cursing at tussocks and peat hags, rather than following the yellow brick road to the summit
The burn between the two Lochs was easily enough crossed, it was the one to get to the Rig of Jarkness that posed the problem.Sgurr wrote:That burn is bad. Each time I have squared up to it, I have come off worst. Walked all the way round the loch once so as not to have to do it.
