Summit to Sea!

Lovely little journey into the Chalamain gap and the long traverse to Lurchers. Met some nice folk en route including a lady courageously testing out her new hip! Headed up Summit Buttress a grade 2 scramble on pretty solid ground with a couple of thought provoking steps! Great positions though. A scenic descent with the national park spread ahead of me encouraged a few jogs along the track and back to the Sugarbowl car park. Then with a little time before dinner I launched ‘Patience’ off Ardersier and we headed towards the imposing if not austere Fort George.
