Ella getting them activeToday I was out with Mike, Mark and Alan working for Steven Fallon Mountain Guiding on the Aonach Eagach with Jonty along to gain experience towards his MIA Assessment. Although the general forecasts mentioned a chance of thunder the Met Office's specific forecast was more optimistic for our intended peaks. It turned out to be even nicer than expected. We had a hot and sweaty accent of the east end and made good time over the first Munro of the day and the pinnacles. At the low point of the ridge and after all the scrambling Mike was feeling quite off colour so he opted to descend north to the Kinlochleven Road- at one of the few easy escapes from the ridge- with Jonty. The rest of us summited the second Munro and headed South back to recover the cars before picking the others up. We had a little sun, a little mist and a few spots of rain/light showers- and mostly dry rock! It was only on the return to Fort William that the heavens opened and we heard a little thunder.
