I like your descent route coming off east back to the track - so much easier than the horrendous one we chose the first time, coming off the northern shoulder of Ceann Garbh and walking over/round a million boggy pools.

The route we took off is the WH ascent route. It's a long steep rough walk down to the track but probably the easiest option.
Cheers. :D

1st pics I saw of Foinaven and I said " I'm doing that one day"
This report and route has refuelled that.
Just need 2 things for next year.

Someone with another car
A clear dry day
Maybe thats 3 things.
Anyway brilliant, well in and cheers

Cheers Coop. Some hills you need a few rules. For this one I would say good conditions was the most important. It would have been a shame to do it in the rain and clag.
All the best when you get round to it. :D

Hi Grisu. The first picture I cant remember. The rest were taken on smartphone cameras - Samsung S9 & S10 I think. Taken by myself and my pal and resized down to fit the WH report.
Cheers :D
