Thanks for the photos of Being Fhionnlaidh - glad to see you made it.

Of course you did the right thing, as well as all the practical points you and Moira covered, the pair of you know each other so well that you have great trust in each other even when you are separated on a mountain. You are also someone who is willing to wait for a more active partner to do something you rightly feel is not for you at that time, so you know the score from both perspectives :clap:

Ah yes, the tweaked thigh coming off Bidean nam Bian making me decide not to summit Stob Coire Sgreamhach, which was only 20 minutes away. I thought I'd better concentrate on getting down to the Lost Valley intact. Sounds daft now but was the right thing to do at the time. :think:
