MUNRO ADVENTURE 2015
DAY 34 ( 3rd JUNE )
An Socach 944 metres – the projecting place. Carn a’ Gheoidh 975 metres – hill of the Goose .The Cairnwell 933 metres – hill of the bags Carn Aosda 917 – hill of age!
Long lie in today wasn’t up till 8.30 best sleep for 3 days must have needed it. Had whatever food was left for breakfast tidied away the tent and packed my bag which was now another 7 Pounds heavier. On my way at 9.30 over the bridge which was only 2 minutes away and followed the river for a bit before heading over the heather towards the N ridge of An Socach, when it steepened I certainly felt the extra pounds on my back so it was a very slow climb, a light rain shower gave a perfect rainbow in front on Carn Bhac yesterday’s final summit, with a easier gradient i was soon on my first hill of the day with all surrounding ones clear. Headed down roughly SE to the 600m
contour then gently up the NW ridge and onto the stoney summit off Carn a’Gheoidh, I could now see the final 2 hills for the day not the prettiest ones I’ve done one covered in masts the other ski lifts . Dropped my bag and went out and back to The Cairnwell passing the first people I’ve seen for 4 days on route, picked my bag up and again left it at the descent point and a out and back to Carn Aosda . Back down to the van for a well deserved rest after a hard 4 days out in the wilderness (OMN) . Final comment for today it must be summer it didn’t snow today . Job done section 6 complete.
94 Munros to date.
This has been an incredible few days for Graeme and wonder dog Penny. They have had some weather for June in summer in a wild area and have now completed Section 6 of the Munros – Glen Garry to Braemar 15 Munros in hard conditions.
