Sew unique...

28 May 2012

Quick blast last night from Glen Crow car park to the Cobbler summit in 1hr 1min – “threaded the needle” then back to the car in 34mins. Fast but could be faster if it was cooler than 23ยบ

Nice night and I had the hill to myself.

Three peaks...

20 May 2012

I ran (with winter boots on) up the Cobbler then down to Bealach a’ Mhaim then up Beinn Narnain back down to the Bealach and up to the summit of Beinn Ime in 2hrs 50min, phew. Heading off the hill in the direction of Beinn Luibhean’s lower slopes and back to the car at Glencroe all in 3hrs 39mins... It was running a temperature by then...

Tour of duty ...

13 May 2012
Craig and I went for an Alps training day in Glen Coe with light sacs, big boots and little food the aim of the day was to move fast.
We headed up the Zig Zags, to the east ridge of Stob Corrie nan Lochan then to Bidean nam Bian, then over to Stob Coire Sgreamach before traversing the Beinn Fhada ridge and dropping down into the Lost Valley and back to the car in just over 6hrs. Not bad for 3193m of climbing over the 9.6K journey.
More here on the Simply Epic blog with a great video of the day by Craig.
