1230 - 1900
John, Jim and I - return dangerous brothers
late start as forgot boots, breakfast at Hansens kitchen in Comrie.
NE approach via forest track, summit in 3h20mins meant late dark return, back on East Summit by 4.30pm
head torches then on (lucky had spare batteries) for grassy descent back down knobbly ridge to felled forestry fenceline and deer fence to be climbed. Once safely back on track had first break of day at quarry at 1810, wee dram, cigar etc
fantastic outing, tho 2.5 hrs walking in dark not what had planned,
