Had a great weekend and enjoyed the great company - Although the weather was cold, the Scottish welcome was warm. Only saddened by the loss of life for the 4 climbers on the mountain.

Nothing that I can add to Dave's excellent report - sum's it up well so here are a few pictures I captured.

Met Eric at the Services - He wasn't too hard to find

I am not quite sure this is what they had in mind when it became trendy to have a onesiey. Me at the meet up

Image

Base cmap set up

View from the campsite

and another campsite view

Dave and Jim on the icy trail - a great wee ride (picked up the local lingo :unsure: )

Image

Didn't catch any pictures of Brendan on a nice Tiger.

Will be back for more as soon as possible.

Cheers
Mike

Mine was a Helsport Ringstind. It performed great, and was truly tested in the wind.

I know that Brendan had a North Face, but I don't know which one and don't know what the other lads had but they all worked fine, and no one had any problems that I know about.
