Lochagar five... failed! :(

Date walked: 20/10/2011

set off from dundee at 4am yesterday morning, got to the car park at glen muick at 6am, quick bite to eat then time to get ready... problem number one... i forgot to pick up my boots!!!! :o decided that it would take too long to go back for them so set off in trainers at 7am!! the walk in was nice and relaxed (and comfy due to my footwear!) and as the sun rose over the hills it gave me a nice view of all the deer on the hill sides.

got up as far as the ridge as you round meikle pap, but the snow had been falling the previous night. things were doing good to this point, then i took a step and my leg disappeared into the snow!! :lol:

decided that i was under prepared and under equipped to tackle the last climb to the ridge, so about turned and headed back (slowly) to the car...

passed a few hardy souls on the way back, they looked better prepared with ice axe's, so i hope they made it to the peak and had a better day than me!

Lochnagar, i'll see you early next year!!! 8)
