Left from the YH this time as per wh route Jonah leading and me struggling A night of pinnacles whiskey and a fried brecker . today was going to be clag and wetness . Once out of the Coire it was the assualt on a very wet An Dorus at the top of Dorus we dumped our packs for the scamble up Ghread . Some parts were a wee bit dodgey and with the rock slippery and under the expert guidance of Jonah we got to the top of a very wet summit safely No views just clag but through the gloom you make out a long long way down fearty setting in .
Following the same route back down which required some roping up we got down to Dorus then scrambled up Mhad mair clag and rain then it was back to the bags for a brew and the walk down to the YH then to Carbost for a nice fresh orange juice ( NOT) The rest of the gang were staying put to enjoy an eatery in Portree and I had a 5hr trip back to Rosyth Once more many thanks to our guide Jonah Jones .
