Team Allan

Mountains are special places, but the people that you spend time with in the mountains are some of the best around.

For the past 2 days, I have been utterly spoilt by Team Allan - 3 generations of.  Kerry had absolutely no intention of bagging any hills this week but the offer of the Inaccessible Pinnacle was too big a lure.

Brian is discovering that navigation on Skye is often harder than the guide books indicates (especially in pea soup) - and despite thinking he had climbed Banachdich from the South, he was slightly shocked to learn that he had climbed it from the North.  No wonder the corrie didn't look overly familiar and all the conversations we had about the peak make utter sense now :)

In the end the weather won - the weather always wins on Skye and a traverse will have to wait for another time.
