It was rough on the feet even in my walking boots. @BuckoSnr It’s been ace, John. @danjmoss133 It was SO cold at the top. There was people heading up in shorts and t-shirts as well.

I’m using one of the baggage transfer buses. £25 seemed a bargain. @lennym That’s my plan!! ‘DO NOT VISIT’ Too steep and a long way. @maryemmett03 Good boots, well worn in, and some decent socks and you’re good to go. I’ve not had one blister or rub mark all week. @TimJones15 I made a poor, poor decision today, Tim. They didn’t have burty so I went with Tesco’s own. 🤮 @Jackcabnory I know.

All that effort I’ve put in and he hails on me?! Poor, one star trip advisor review coming up 😂 @james_run_james For a tiny moment. I was tempted. @sheffieldlamby I can’t complain with the week I’ve had can I? @chris280dw Thanks, Chris. You certainly live in a great part of the world. @eeemonkey Typical. Although, the amount of people heading up as I was coming back down it would have been like an illegal rave up there 😂 @BrianDrought Do you know what Bri, for a split second I contemplated it. 😂 @jammymcfc I know! I can’t complain at all. I’ve had a brilliant week.It was grim at the top, but what a way to end a brilliant solo adventure in Scotland 😍 #lump 2 miles back down the track, look up, the mist has cleared and the summit is clear 🙄’s hailing and my pole has frozen 😂 Nevis summit 🏔 miles up.
