Missed this first time round - too busy with the builders over summer.... :roll:
Brings a lump to the throat - a very fitting way to read her last message and glad you got such great conditions.

The main video is outstanding. Just amazing. Thanks for taking the time to put that together.

p.s. You’re pretty mental camping on the edge of those mountains, but hey ho. You’re still with us.

Incredible report and the video was first class.

Done that today in very similar conditions to what you experienced. Definitely something very special about those two hills.

I read your post and it was touching and good that you got to share memories of your mum in our beautiful mountain scenery.
