thread It was the Buachaille Etive Beag we meant to do.
That's a bit of a slog at the start, but I don't think the pap was much easier. I forgot to take into account the difference in starting elevation.

permalink Hello!
I'm glad someone's on top of that.

I did the Buachaille Etive Beag a couple of years ago. Depending which side you go in from, it's either a big slog or a fucking enoromous slog. Stunning up there though. That was one of the best days I've ever had in the mountains on my own.

that we aren't always climbing the same mountain, even when we mean to
permalink I did a long day up around Crianlarich back in April
when I found myself with a day on my own in Scotland.

A bit grey, fog/cloud on top... a couple of feet of loose snow. Crampons and ice axe stuff for about three hours.

To be honest, fucking hard work with no much reward. I was aiming for four peaks, but bailed after 3. Just didn't feel safe on my own. I'm pretty competent, but I know when to get out alive...

Sounds like a perfect title for a HMHB tune!
