My reputation lies in tatters just now & I"m so thankful for that.

Well done Willie. These are great hills. Had my first wild camp there a couple of years back. Nearly broke me. Hats off to the three of you doing that circuit and walking back out.......and the drive home after :clap:

Let's hope the YTS kids don't get their measuring sticks out again in the area and demote anymore for you :lol: You'd end up compleating the Corbetts by default.......

Walking out after the round was lesser of the two evils tbh.

Don't think I could cope with another demotion after I've climbed it
