|Low level traverse from NE to SE, taking in the 2 S-most summits - no desire for a 3rd visit to summit in poor weather. Large outcrop at HP. Jon and I descended SSE via two attractive low-prom headland HPs (NM 72022 03518, NM 71689 03310), then entertaining rocky goaty descent S to shoreline and round to waiting boat. Impressive Section completion by Dazingdale, who also organised the trip with Farsain - but where was the whisky ;-)||RHW||15/05/2018|
