:shock: Wow !! “Running out of superlatives” is COR-RECT! :D

Stunning pics of a stunning mountain Martin. Well done! :clap: Delighted you had such great weather. Looking at some of those gives me the heebie-jeebies. :lol: :crazy:

I still have nightmares about my abortive attempt on Liathach – bagged Spidean a'Choire Leith, but bottled out at Am Fasarinen pinnacles, sadly. :(

Your pictures certainly do do it justice, amazing! Some of them really give a great impression of what it's like up on Liathach, most impressive and great reading for someone who has the mountain on their to-do list as well.... :clap: :clap: :clap:

Wow, amazing photos. Not only am I jealous of you getting that kind of view, but your description of 3h45mins meaning it's a long way gave me a giggle. 14 hours on a good day for me :)

Those are the kinds of views I dream of. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Martin, we've just got back home, internet at last.

Brilliant report and your photo's certainly do Liathach justice. It was a great day out, no mistake, an experience Denise and I will remember for a very long time, not just for the mountain and the weather, but for the great company you gave us.

Many thanks again.

Thank you to everyone for all the kind comments, I won't name you all individually.
It is those sort of days that make this fantastic pastime we all love, suffer and enjoy so much worthwhile 8)
Thanks again Martin and don't forget to let me know next time you venture north, especially if you bring the weather with you :lol: :lol:

What a great day to get for it, Martin. Nice to see you decided to "go high" between the summits. I'm looking forward to this mountain :D

You're a man on a mission Martin - and know how to progress in style.

I'll be putting these on my "to do list" for next year and this report will be visited frequently I suspect

Well Done

8) 8) These hills are impressive enough without an inversion :D . You got the best of the weather there, although luckily it still seems to be holding out. Almost makes up for the months of crap 8)
