Creag Pitridh, Geal Charn + Beinn a' Chlachair inversion

Hi all.

Not that there's a lack of recent amazing inversion photography on the forum, incase you've consumed it all and need another hit, here's my humble contribution from that week back in March (I think this was my first proper inversion in a solid year of walking).

Perfect walking conditions, if occasional bitter wind. Remained in base layer all day with sunnies and buff to protect the baldy heed.

Met two parties during the day, everyone including myself were plastered with stupid, permanent grins :D

Amazing how sublime conditions like that can universally lift people's mood. Though if it was like that all the time the effect would no doubt diminish (that's what I'm telling myself anyway :? )

To top it all off, the clouds dispersed in time for my descent in the afternoon meaning no reluctant walk back down to glen-level!

All in all, very lucky.

Bridge over inlet to Lochan na h-Earba - not looking promising

Broken through clouds - kind of missed the Shawshank Redemption moment

Basking on Geal Charn - arms/neck burnt, sore face from excessive smiling, but generally ecstatic.

What. A. Vapour. Trail.

And another!

Nice easy plateau jaunt to Beinn a' Chlachair
