We started at the car park and started climbing at 8 and passed a sign saying "beware danger of death"
we walked on a very stony path to the rope bridge and a waterfall i had the choice of going over rocks or taking the rope bridge, i picked the rope bridge then my dads friend Mark had to come over and he had walking sticks, so he picks to throw them over and the end of a stick came off and landed in the water and it sunk, we never seen it again.
We got to the waterfall and we were walking over rocks beside the waterfall.
We came down from the waterfall and went down over a bit of bog and we started climbing again.
I got to a small white cairn and i was kinda over the clouds and i started climbing again.
I got to the top of the first hill in about 2 hours and i had to wait on my brother and my dad because they were going slow. (An Gearanach 3,221ft/982m)
We walked along to the ridge where me and my brother had to be roped over the rocks we came down from there and started climbing again.
