I won't pretend this particular day is a bit of a blur and think it still would be even if i had written this post at the time of doing it . ( Wrote this 6 weeks later)

Weather was perfect , dry , sunny with clear sky's but much of the day i was too busy looking at where i was going than the views.

Me and Steve ( Thank you Steve for doing this , would not have been able to do it without you) Headed off with the aim to do the 4 ( Eag, Mor, Alisdair and Mhic Chinnich .
However descending Alisdair i had a nervous breakdown , :crazy: not sure where it came from... felt i could not go for the 4th. The conditions were perfect, i was with an exceptionally competent climber/mountaineer but i just felt emotionally exhausted and admittedly my hands had taken a pounding.
Think the constant scrambling had gotten to me and after 10hrs of it i had had enough .
But amazing experience and so glad i had done it this way , my only regret is that i had not stopped to take photos much at all . So unfortunately i have none to share :(
It's a tough day in a strange way , different experience from doing your average 4 summits .

A huge thank you for Steve's Motivation and patience , you are a star xxxx
