A nice afternoon hike with a little rain.
Perfect conditions and a helping shove got me to the summit this time.
The only one of the Arrochar Alps I like... however done in very misty weather
stunning mountain, best of the Arrochar Alps by far. It is a real shame it is not a Munro. Shame about the weather which was poor to say the least. it happens every time I go to Arrochar.
Should have signed this the day I wrote the SP-Page...! Doh.
Its a great summit to do and although smaller than the other Arrochar's it has to be the most shapely.
It was a dam cold day at -6 degrees C. But the sun was out and that soon warmed you up when out in it.
A mountain with three interesting summits, even in the mist. The South Peak was never going to be scaled by such a lamentable scrambler as me. The Central Peak looked much easier but given the damp and windy conditions I gave it a miss.
Nice hike with a little scrambling towards the top. Beautiful views.
Despite periods of sunshine the day we went up, recent weather had rendered the technical climbing pretty dang greasy. Still a fine day in the hills on a peak I'd long wanted to climb.
Hiked the north summit, scrambled the central, and downclimbed a bit short of the south summit when it started snowing (Russell and I didn't fancy the unroped downclimb with a lot of build up.)
Beautiful, atmospheric hill.
Nice days climb with a little scrambling at the final stages. Brilliant views from the summit. Back again in May 2008 on a fantastic day. Climbed onto the (true) summit rock this time round.
Looked like you had some lovely weather for this trek...!
Wish I had been there :0(
Also thank you for adding some nice shots to the summitpost page.
