Day 2 and back to Glen Brittle with one car left at the Youth Hostel for our return. Started again from the campsite with Sgurr Mhic Choinnich the first Munro of the day. Again a good path leads to the foot of the col with scree slopes leading to the col. This was when we got one of the great benefits of hiring a guide as before reaching the scree there a boulderfield which we called the staircase and avoided the scree making the assent a lot more enjoyable and quicker. After reaching the col we made our way to SMM and then over to the In Pinn. We had a 10 minute wait before ascending the Pinn with a further 5 mins or so delay on our climb up the Pinn, which we all found to be straightforward enough. Mo was then lowered down before Chris, our guide abseiled down. All that was left was for Jimmy and myself to abseil down and then make our way to our third Munro of the day, Sgurr na Banachdaich. We summited then made our way down to the Hostel. Another great day, again in great weather conditions with no wind apart from when Jimmy let one go on our Delay while going up the Pinn. I think it's called ******* himself.
