What a beautiful day it was to do some mountaineering. Weather was quite nice - just a little windy which made it even more colder than it was. Still the snow was the most biggest obstacle here - there was lots of it. Someplaces I did have it on my waist level but mostly it was on my knee level. I was missing my snowshoes which are back in Finland. I never imagined that I would need them in here. How wrong can you be when you think you have packed all the necessary items for your trip?

The climb was actually easier than I thought - there wasn't really any need to do scrambling. Maybe the snow helped me a bit there. The views was nice so I'm very happy that I was able to do this while there's snow. I think it isn't something you have constantly.

Definitely my best climb so far - and last for now - unfortunately I have to go back to Finland on sunday. And there's still so many munros where I haven't visited.

Glad you've been enjoying Scotland exeli :D as you say, we don't get this sort of weather all the time. Maybe see you on the hills when you return from Finland 8)
