The Big Bad Ben (Expand pics)
A few words Wick if I might, ref the bagging/notbagging debate. When notbagging shouts “foul”, stick your fingers in your ears. Before the oul sod snaffled my thighs, my lungs, my heart and my soul, I was that bagger where bagging was born. Highland Scotland. High heather, wide bumble bees, low green hills and other such dandering pigeons were scattered by the devil wild cats of Glencoe. The first foray was the Aonach Eagach and by the time I was on the Belfast boat, I had a quarter of Scotland’s Munros pinned to the map; many of them several times over. The summit of Sciath Chuil I crawled to on my belly on foot-thick ice and a force 8. It is what bagging is about, which of course Wicklore you know only too well and for which your efforts cannot be commended enough. For those of us who don’t, here it is. The hills decide what they give us. We don’t. You may have your best day ever, eating scones at the foot of Benbulbin or hanging from an ice axe over the Big Gun. If you get it from bagging, go for it. My training was at the heels of one of the most impressive baggers in these islands, whose parents were told his life would be difficult, given walking was not really an option. By the time we got to his last Munro I was just about keeping up with him. “What are you going to do now,” I asked. “Well son,” he said “I’ll go back and have a look at them now.” Perhaps the most intense moments we will ever have is when bagging hills. Wick, you just keep doing it and best of all, reporting back.
