My first winter climb and first munro thankfully i was in the company of experienced climbers, i was really looking forward to it but within 20 minutes of setting off i knew it was going to be a struggle, heading up towards ptarmigan ridge there was a lot of ice and that was before we reached the snow line and when we reached that i knew the fun was about to start, all that festive food and drink was taking its toll lol. By the time we got to the final push to the summit my legs had gone but thanks to the experienced climbers i was with who helped me finally get to the summit and conquer my first munro and winter climb :D :D
