An early bivvy on Stob Daimh of Cruachan.
~ Those orange plastic bivvy sacks had the virtue of cheapness, but little else to commend them.
Stob Dearg from Glen Etive, a bit below Coupall Bridge.
~ Early days, in a Vango Force 10, and as if that wasn't heavy enough I often lugged about (on public transport) not one but two medium-format cameras, with several pounds of glass, in that huge rigid case. I soon learned.
South ridge of Stobinian.
~ An anticlockwise circuit of Cruach Ardrain, Tulaichean, Stobinian and Ben More. In these conditions that was a big enough day, made practicable by camping in the upper reaches of the glen, where I was able to spend a second night before heading for the early train at Crianlarich. In the afternoon sun the west flank of Stobinian was an uneasy place, little sloughs of snow sliding past constantly, and me taking such steps as I could to avoid launching something bigger.
