Aye, I was on the same hills on the same day, and suffered the same fate :?
I maybe met you in the car park? There was a few of us doomed that day.. :lol:

Basscadet
would you have been in the group that was behind us on the approach to the dam.?
One of the groups members shouted to ask if it would be safe to cross at the dam and I shouted back " yes if you liked a bit of danger " needless to say we all decided to cross by the river slightly up stream of the dam.

Naw, we went up the Aonachs, and over the grey Corries the 'wrong way' so didn't have to contend with the river this time :D
