We chose Mount Keen this day as the weather in the east of the country was due to be aweful and the east looked promising. I have seen reviews of Mount Keen as 'Easy' and 'Boring'.

I would say the walk back is a little on the boring side but the climb itself I really enjoyed. Not a steep walk but a great way to spend a day and tick another Munro off the list.

At the summit the cloud was generous at times and allowed us to take in the beaufitul and vast view.
