With group of three plus Murray Wilson of Kingdom Guides. In cloud above about 700m all day and the weather was appalling for the three hours or so that it took to traverse the full length between the Munros. Heavy rain and gusting strong winds. It made the rock extremely slippery and did not help my nerves! Positive - after the first 100m or so, you could not see how much further you could fall! Maryann and Grant were the other clients. Murray promised that it would be fun and I'm sure at some point - many years hence - I'll realise that it was! On the day, I was on my knees and bum as much as on my feet. It was every bit as hairy as I had feared but Murray kept us going with no major panics. Feels great to have achieved it. Would I go back in dry clear weather? Hmm, let me think about that...…...
