Dear Friends
Today I have walked to my first Munro: Ben Cruachan 1126m. I started about 9.30am and have reached the summit around 12.15pm with few stops on the way up. I have done the normal, most known route, but today was a wet ground and slippery. Dangerous in some places but I have managed. The day was very misty up there and views were limited but beside this I had lunch on the top I have met wonderful people up there. It was an incredible experience being there, feeling enormity and vastness of the place.Thank You Robert from Oban and Peter from Inverness for such a multitude of information about mountains and climbing in general. Guess what? Who is in the middle?
