 My 200th Munro

My 200th Munro 06 Nov 2010
Looking to climb Sgurr nan Coireachan [Glen Finnan] on the 11th December as my 200th Munro.  My plans are to head up on the Friday 10th and cycle into Curryhully Bothy and stay 2 nights.  So if any of you fancy tagging along then drop me a note. There will be some room in my car if anyone needs a lift via Glasgow. 

 (there might even be some good snow falls by then)

Heading out later today as planned but it looks very much like sledging rather than using the bike. And with the prospect of perfect conditions for a full inversion then it should make good for a memorable 200th.  

As always all are welcome so if you have time pop on bye.

How did you get on Kev?

We got to within 100m height of the top and 1k distance. 
My knee was giving a wee bit of niggling and then the same leg went down in between some rocks which left me with know doubt that It wasn't going to be my day at all. 

So after some very hard soul searching I told Kevin Woods to head up and claim the top but after 20min he turned back and we then headed of into the sunset and pending darkness. So my 200th is still there to be done and I would like to get it done by the end of this year but will just have to wait and see.

Its back on again.

 After failed attempt on the 12th I am now looking at the 28th as the next climb Looking to climb Sgurr nan Coireachan [Glen Finnan] as my 200th Munro. My plans are to head up on the Monday 27th and cycle into Curryhully Bothy and stay 1 or 2 nights. 

So if any of you fancy tagging along then drop me a note. There will be some room in my car if anyone needs a lift via Glasgow. 

Remember to BYOB & Fuel Crampons and Ice Axe as there WILL snow falls by then.
