Climbed from A'Chuill bothy with Iain Brown.chriswatson10/04/2014
From our camp at the head of Loch Quoich, we ascended via the path up the Allt a Choire Reidh. This path probably pre dates the Lock dam as it's unloved now and nature is reclaiming it. I was much assisted by an ancient walking stick that had been skillfully been crafted from wood. It had two handles, one for ascent and a higher one for descent. The maker must have known what he was doing as it had also been wittled in the middle to give it the perfect balance between shock absorbing springiness and weight supporting stiffness. Met a Scots/Sherpa chap at the top who had 15 munros to go but also bad knees. Hope he made it. Returned to car after mindless flog over a pass to Glendessarry. Walking stick broke as we neared the car.mindlessflogger13/07/2013
