No, this is the last time.
Padodes, Robroying is travelling without map or compass- go on, have a look at the article, it's funny and interesting. I could claim Rob Roy was keen on Munros but the century that elapsed between his death and Sir Hugh's birth weakens the argument. Odds are that he did climb most of the Glen Falloch / Glen Dochart 3000s, though. Earliest recorded 3000 ascent was Mad Colin Campbell in 1590 driving a herd of goats off Stuchd an Lochain. I've no doubts Simon would know the earliest Irish 3000 ascent. St Brendan on his own hill, I suppose.

A compass is a high tech development but its a development of one of these naturally occurring thingies, the earth's magnetic field and metal with a charge or something (you can see I did extra singing instead of physics.) GPS goes along with Gameboys, jPods and mobile phones in the list of ways to use up the west's pocket money. From that point of view, compass use is better than GPS.
