Hey folks!
If anyone read my last post, you'll know about the recovery of my knee. I do like to think I'm back up to full strength now :)

This was a very impulsive climb. I was chatting with my girlfriend last night and we decided that if the weather turned out okay, we'd go climbing - Ben Rinnes was the target :)

The forecast was correct and we had a beautiful day for it. I am loving the sunshine in October this year!

We set off fairly early this morning for the hour long drive to reach the mountain. Only a few cars were parked up at that point, so getting a spot wasn't tough at all. Much tougher when we arrived back after the climb.. the place was packed! :lol:

What I loved about this one was the climb started as soon as I left the car, compared to walks like Mount Keen where there was a lengthy walk before the ascent. Started off fairly steady, wasn't too challenging but we were well aware we were climbing lol.. bodies still not woken up properly I think!

Another Corbett down! Just another Corbett down, time to start making a dent in the Munro's I think. Remembered my camera this time so pictures are a little better, far from a professional photographer, but not too bad I think :)

Hope to see you again!
