Chno Dearg (1046m): Graeme Gatherer & Phil Lacoux


The van stopped  keeping the wind off as I got out after seeing Graeme and John coming down from the Eassains. I was surprised Graeme did not want to pause; a bit worried by a passing comment about training run for a round Mount Blanc race; embarrassed by early mention of there being no need to dodge the puddles as there will be quite a few; charmed by the careful map checking up and down the route whilst in reality waiting for me; in agreement with his just keep moving even if it is not very fast attitude; enjoyable gentle glissades as part of the decent. Overall pleased with my small contribution to a fine venture on a blustery day in a location new to me.
