Scottish MV? And a note for Wicklore Part 1
All this talk of Kinlochewe has jogged my memory about and incident, that I know would be close to Wicklores heart!

About 3 Christmas ago, I was staying at Loch Maree, for my mountaineering clubs New Years meet, when a friend and I decided upon doing part traverse of Beinn Eighe. Essential Ruadh - stac Mor to Spidean Coire nan Clach. Munro to Munro in other words. Our partners would accompany us from the car park to Coire Mhic Fhearchair, then then would return back along the Coire Dubh Mor path to Glen Torridon and collect one of the cars.

So off we set, into some of the finest mountain scenery there is anywhere. The 6 km into the Coire Mhic Fhearchar passed quickly, with everyone ohing and ahing at the morning light hitting the various snow capped and streaked peaks and glens round us, finishing off by an encore of the triple buttress of Coire Mhic Fhearchar. This is an impressive lump of ruck, particularly if you haven't seen it before.

We failed miserably in our attempts to brake the ice on the lochain in the coire, so said are goodbyes to the girls and went for a direct & steep ascent of Ruadh-stac Mor, to save some time. As we arrived at its 1010 metre summit, the west coast mountains opened out before us. The only problem being it was baltic. To give you an idea, particularly if you have never been on A Scottish munro in the depth of winter. I was wearing full Paramo Aspira Salopettes, Paramo Shirt, fleece, Paramo Aspira jacket an Insulate jacket over that, hat, shades, power stretch liner gloves and a pair of Black Diamond Gauntlet climbing gloves to keep warm! Taking into account the lapse rate ( anything between 1 degree for every 100 -150 metres climbed ) would give us a rough temp of around -21 and that was without including the wind chill effect!
