Third day of five-day trip with DW & SL. Classic Liathach traverse. The scrambling was easier than I expected - principally because it is is essentially ALL avoidable if you want it to be. We had an awesome day - clear weather, no wind across ridge/summits, but it was hazy.AGWilliamson21/09/2014

1st of 2, with Tom. Left car at end of walk and hoofed it along the road before starting ascent. Dodgy pastry from Inverness Tesco was due to haunt Tom most of the day :D A sock sacrifice was to be made later :Dbowzi07/06/2014
