Five Sisters of Kintail completed Saturday March 27th. Weather was mixed, dry for first 7hours then rain. Contrast in weather made for a great adventure. Plenty snow still on the hills, crampons and ice axe where required. Great effort for all who completed the walk.

Below is a vid of the walk...watch this in 720p or 1080p, and in full screen. If your connection can handle it, as vid is HD.

Another great video, must admit I could never walk in those conditions. I would be well outside my comfort zone!

Well i think with a 1 day winter skills course you would be fine.

It is strange at first walking with crampons and 4 season boots but you quickly adapt. More strength is needed, especially when doing epic amount of hours.
