Long way to go to just come back!

Date walked: 12/04/2019

Time taken: 8 hours

Distance: 10.5km

Clun weekend up at Glencoe Independent Hostel.

Jim. Wilma, Kerry and I set off for Biden nam Bien.
Very long day up the valley.

We got to (the bit on map) and the snow on the verge (Diamond Buttress) leading up to the first summit looked very dodgy. Up until that point no snow had been seen at all and it was a cracking day.
Jim hadn't brought his crampons so I had left mine in the car. (no point taking them if I was the only one with them)
Plus Kerry and Wilma have no experience of winter climbing or have any winter gear so the game was a boggie!
If Jim and I had been on our own we probably would have attempted it...
Dissapointed day indeed as it was a tough day to get up as far as we got.
But heyho it'll be there for another time.
Walkhighlands reckons this will take 7-9 hours. I usually find WH to be pretty spot on in terms of timings for me. However, it took us 8 hours to do what we did albeit with a lot of stops to take in the views. I reckon this might take a good bit more, possibly around 10 hours if not more... for me anyway!

Thought I would make this walk report public as others may find it useful for this time of year.
