:lol: Just wanted to report on an excellent day of walking, climbing and scrambling on Liathach last Saturday 2nd May. Ably guided by Jim Sutherland of nineonesix, we did both Munros East to West in 8 hours. The wind speed was around 40 mph along the ridge accompanied by snow and hail. Our very wet decent took 3 hours and the pint at the Torridon Inn was very well deserved. Kath Greenman :D

Well done Kath. Did you take any photos? I'm sure there's plenty on here who'd like to see some of the pinnacles etc.

Well done - a challenging scramble in good weather, and I can't imagine what it would be like in a near blizzard!

Definitely a well earned pint.
