MUNRO WEEK IN THE WEST
Mick & John have been out with Rich for 4 days of Munro bagging in the Ben Nevis and Glencoe area. Mick has been out with me on a winter skills a couple of years ago. Both guys are fit and strong, both just 70 years young. They didn't get much in the way of sun last week but this didn't seem to curtail their enthusiasm. They topped off the week with a romp around the CMD arete onto Ben Nevis in 7.5 hrs. If I can get round in less than 8 hours along this classic route when I hit 70 I will be a very happy man! Well done Mick & John. Big thanks to Richard for looking after them and guiding for Tarmachan Mountaineering last week. All photos courtesy Rich.
