The idea is to get off the hill safely - which is what you did. Well done for making the right desicions you two.

Hope to see you in July. :wink:

Alls well that ends well, back down in one piece, job done. I was across the Glen on Tuesday seeing in the ton on the Forcan Ridge in much better weather, still managed to terrify myself in places though. Can't wait to get back up to do these ones 8)
