Dave (Pigeon) and myself had a really good walk up the Vorlich, meet Ian & his dog Jake on the way up as we hit the snow line, stayed as a wee group for the rest of the way and enjoyed the banter.
Going up Stuc a Chroin via the Prow was a little bit scary, given the Ice and snow on it, but as I popped my head over the summit the sun hit me and I their was the cairn, it was a welcome sight and a real sense of achievement came over me :D

The snow whirlwind 2 minutes in was really cool
