Climbed with Chris and Andrew - weather generally ok/overcast with mist on summit of Beinn Dorain. Good route, to encompass all three hills. Very steep ascent of Beinn Mhanach after long walk in, cross country walk to gain faint path to then climb B an D. Finally, very, very steep descent from B D.

Had a great time!
