Well done Kirsty and Josh, but more so for the old geezers.
Hope you all enjoyed it, you can take it easy now, the rest of the Munros are 'simples' - I think!
Would also like to see any pics of your epic day if you got any. :)

Wow an amazing achievement Kirsty! You rightly justify your screen name on here! :lol: I am 24 and haven't made it up the Innaccesible Pinnacle yet, though I have seen it and it looks amazing.

Am looking forward to seeing some pics of this when you get them :D

Well done Kirsty, what an achievement, i take my hat of to you. I met your Grandad on Beinn a' Chleibh on the 26thAug and he was telling me all about it and to have a look at your report, which gave me a few chuckles, as he said it would. I hope your grandad found a route down Beinn a' Chleibh ok. All the best in your Munro bagging and say hi to Gramps.
