29 to 31 October 2011 – The Annual TGO Challengers Weekend in Fort William

Graham Brookes at Point 767 on Beinn Trilleachan, on Sunday morning

I reported on this weekend at the time, here and here.  It’s the first time I’ve been able to attend, as the weekend usually clashes with a long-standing commitment – the Ramsoc weekend – so I was grateful that this year’s TGOC weekend was a week later than usual.

I was lucky to be chauffeured by Graham and Sue, and I joined Graham in climbing a couple of easy Corbetts in Glen Etive.  We made the best of the, at times inclement, weather.

In addition to the previous postings, I’ve uploaded an annotated slideshow here.  I’m surprised that there are so many photos, some of which have been provided by Graham.  I hope you enjoy them, although they weren’t taken with my new Canon G12 – it was deemed to wet to risk its baptism! 

Finally, the actual routes taken, as recorded by the Garmin Gadget, are here:

Saturday – Beinn Maol Chaluim:

Sunday – Beinn Trilleachan:

So am I Gibson. I used it for the first time today in the sunny English Peak District, but with even less expertise than usual as I was leading a group of friends who were playing at imitating a herd of cats. Great fun, though.
