From Aonach Beag. Hard to turn my back on the scenery but followed the path to the windy bealach and made my way up the easy slope where, 100m from the summit I met a snow-goggled Becky coming the other way, having walked all the way up against the spin-drift. (Our vague plan to meet turning out incredibly well!) Kissed the summit cairn and sat in it's lea to eat carrot cake in celebration of my Munro compleation. Headed down the ski slopes with a bit of seated glissading for fun, ate more cake and stuff using the closed snack hut for shelter and took the black MTB route (no danger of bikes today) which was surprisingly enjoyable. 7 hours.Wycombe Wanderer05/04/2019
