Ascended on a crossing from Glen Einich to Glen Geusachan. On the basis that it was not 'promoted' from being a top until the 1997 revisions, was it my first Munro or not? I believe it was on Munro's original 1891 list, however, and given the absence of any 'objective' definition, perhaps the original list is the only one that really counts!

When I went this way in 1960 it was still on the lists as one of the elevated ones I guess since the setting up of the list? :lol: I do seem to recall the revision in the early eighties when was that 1982 or was it in 1984? when it was relegated and at the same time as the one beside Moruisg and Beinn a'Chaidheim were elevated....look what happened to them in the great re-revision in 1996, was it, when Angels Peak was restored. :) It those past days all the happenings coming out from the 'Great Keepers of the list' were by way of magazines rather that as now from the Web. :lol:
