Last Munro Top - climbed with Kenny having also traversed 200th Corbett Beinn Maol Chaluim from Glen Etive. Had been saving Corbett for last Corbett/last munro top celebration but thought it was better to climb top, given it was already 16.5 years since penultimate oneSpudGunn27/02/2019

Unfinished business. 2 weeks ago, climbed to the ridge, but thick fog and poor navigation meant a near miss. Thanks to today was a brilliant climb in perfect conditions. CP at Achnambeithach (hidden off road and much quieter than others along the A82). Walk on the road over the bridge, over crash barrier and through metal gate to the start of an excellent track which climbs steeply above and eventually beside and over Allt Coire nam Beithach. Easy to cross in summer - might be challenging when river is in spate. Head SE at the ridge, over Stob Coire name Beith and beyond that to Bidean nam Bian. Very steep ascent and descent, but at 5.5 miles, quite a bit shorter than alternative (much busier routes).callumorr15/08/2016

Atteempt at a winter ascent of the famous Deep Cut Chimney in poor conditions with Alan Armstrong. Pouring sloughs of snow and spindrift -dangerous but exhilarating. Took me 2hr 15 mins to lead the first pitch as not much ice was my excuse and stormy conditions. Alan took 1hr 5 mins to second it. He couldn't do next pitch. Joint relief as we abseiled off before dark.Chris Pearson27/02/1999
