“Beginning the journey over Scotland’s Munros seemed easy some time ago. Persevering through the list was hard though, but with some good health, fortune, and a dollop of OCD, I can earnestly tweet, that this circuit is now well and truly compleat.”

Congratulations :clap: :clap: :clap: Does the ridge look as narrow when you are up there as it does in the video? It looks pretty scary but you seemed to just float along! What will you do now - after having a rest?

Congratulations :D and what a way to finish the M's. I'll probably need a guide to do this one. Don't mind scrambling, but this looks airy.
