Re: up to date

Furthermore - if day 1 is foul and you start on the FWA and it turns fine on day 2 there is what looks like a very interesting way up Ruighe Breac onto Sgurr nan Coireachan and over Sgurr Thuilm down to Glen Cuirnean and Glen Pean

Re: up to date

Hi Janet,

What a great route!

I had thought of starting at Monar, but decided to go back to an Oban start. Maybe next year? That start along the ridge sounds like a must do - although I have seen (You Tube) one account of a few Challengers who didn't get the good weather that you enjoyed. I think you are right in calling it one of the hardest starts.

That day up from Loch Ossian was superb.
That descent from Geal Charn had me a bit concerned before getting there - and I'm pleased that the weather was good.
I must have been lucky, as I managed to stumble across the path down it fairly quickly.

It was great to meet up with you a couple of times after that.
