Oh well, I got about 2/3 of the way up Ben Vane today and then turned back. A number of reasons. It’s a couple of years since I’ve been up a hill and I’m out of shape, it’s pretty steep all the way and there had already been a couple of bits that I didn’t fancy reversing as tired as I was, and as there was another hour’s worth at least of climbing I decided better not.

Add to this the fact the weather was coming in and getting colder, wetter, and windier. By the time I got back down to the van it was, to use a technical term, shit.

A grand day out all the same as you can see from the photographs.

  1. Nah … not shit … just a nice soft day. Loch Lomond didn’t get where it is without a spot of rain falling!

  2. Quite, and our man in his Paramo gear too! Would Walkers Crisps a Mother’s Pride cheese bun have got Mallory to the top do we think?
