Well, another year and decade comes to an end;
And I hope everyone on WH achieved their goals, or some of them; if you set any for 2019.
If you've set any for 2020 hopefully you achieve some of them , if not all.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to all and may the views be with you, Cheers

Thought I'd end the year by going up this Graham/ donald combo.
Just one or two points really. Once you get to the waterfall go up a bit on the left side and you'll eventually come to a wooden bridge to cross.

Theres another one about 500m past this one.
Finally got to meet Bart on the summit of Uamh Bheag, doesn't say a lot but hes a happy chap

And rather than come with me on the peat hag assault course, Bart decided he'd rather stay and watch over Ben vorlich and Stuc a chroin

Have I mentioned the peat hags yet

-they start before the summit of Uamh Bheag and finish after beinn nan Eun. Not too bad today really as most were frozen, and I wouldn't like to go through these after a lot of rain, or in the summer.
Dont tell yourself " phew, the hags are over" , because theres more, and when this lots finished , theres even more!!
Some kind soul actually helped with this one

Good circuit today, helped by the weather and frozen ground

A nice pic of Ben Vorlich and co to finish

And one of the Graham Beinn Dearg which looked so impressive today - one for the future

Ascent is a rough estimate- probably a lot more due to clambering up down those hags :D
