Guide: Padeeeee McGuire!!!!!!!!
sooo my grandpa and josh's grandpa have been friendds since ........ a few billion years ago <university> so they get together and climb some munros with their grandkids <me and josh>.
we all went to skye for a 4 day hoilday the first day we went up bla bheinn and the views were phenominal!!!!!!!!!!!! we could see all the way round the cuillin range
the second day we went up 2 more munros, the names of them have run out of my mind but we went up those 2 with paddeeeeee!! we scrambled a bitty to the tops of them and were or ropes for one part it was really fun tho but we were in complete mist all the way up from about half way
the third and final day we climbed up sgurr na banachdich then the inaccessible pinnacle! we had no views once again but it was an amazing expenience! we climbed up and up and it was reealy scary when we got onto the ridge of the pin and it was a sheer drop on either side of it we all got totally freaked out when paddeee made us all stand not attatched to the mountain whilst he 'fired us down' the other side if there is a mountaineeer out there who has not been to the summit of the innaccessible pinnacle they have not lived! everyone in the world should be able to experience the feeling you got when you reach the top of the inn pinn! okaaay so im done now byeee! happy climbing! kjc x

Hope you all enjoyed it, you can take it easy now, the rest of the Munros are 'simples' - I think!
Would also like to see any pics of your epic day if you got any.
