Looks a tough day, scoob.
I'd planned to do both the grahams a few weekends back but that might have been a bit ambitious given the terrain in your video.
I'll stick to donalds for now :lol:

The wind coming off the Sow of Atholl was something. Good choice.

The original plan was to do both Grahams, but the high wind blizzards made us reconsider :lol: we had thought about bailing of to the left side but the wind in our faces was too strong :shock: so we opted for this interesting gully :crazy: which gave us a good view of the cliffs on the way out 8)
