Climbed on a very hot day (the hottest of the year) with Colin and Sarah.
Left car at 9:00 and headed up Glen Nevis to Steall falls. Sarah and I crossed the wire bridge and Colin paddled!
Traversed the river beneath the falls, some of us with more difficulty than others, then navigated the bog.
The climbing was great with tremendous views all round but water was running low with no where to top up.
An awesome walk round the ridge got us to the last summit (Sgurr a'Mhaim) where the last of the water was consumed.
A long dry descent lead us to the read at Polldudh Falls. Two litres of water from the river, two paracetamol, an energy gel and some stretches and all was good.
