Glen, heather, anil and I. A while back Glen asked me if I wanted to join him for this. Tried to persuade all that the Arête was best way but lost for different reasons. Camped glen Nevis Friday night. Good chat and food in the pub followed by vino until the wee hours. The path is long but good, the company great, but this is all I hate about hill walking. So many people looked like a conger all the way up. Summit crowded by 100 Celtic fans doing a huddle. It was like being on the terraces. Glen asked one what was the score. His reply '1 nil to the fecking mountain' also the summit area is one giant dustbin with Eau de Gents bog! I think when I do the arête I'll do it both wats and avoid the top of Nevis. Good day out will me old mucker and friends though.
