Saturday 23rd Jan 2010 and the weather was kind. Great clear day with sunshine. 7 munros in crampons, tough on the legs but well worth it. Finished in darkness, with slight showers. Great meal in the Kintail Lodge afterwards. Well done to all.

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

Yeah fun is the word, but also scary at times!!.

Great club with experienced members, you always feel safe and in good hands. I only took up the walking seriously 18 months ago, but i have learned so much and witnessed some awesome scenery.

Can't wait till the snow makes an appearance again....
