Route and vetters comments in a nutshell, without giving away the route entirely.
"We are faced with "vetting" the route of someone recently seen on television as a winter camping enthusiast (I'd say expert).
However, Chris, you have Tony with you.... (poor sod;)"
"Auchertyre Hill is a bit roughty toughty" where have I heard that before...
From the route sheet that Chris sent me...
Fri 21km 887m asc.
We have Thursday and technically Friday to use as well and I'd expect to use Thursday. These are the high routes. The Fair Weather Route is less ascent.
Vetters comments "Tony - Shirt nan Ceathramham, Carn Eighe and Mam Social are three of the highest Munroes and often still have significant amounts of snow on them in May." It's pointed out the south side for descent usually has less snow :)
"One Challenger got swept off his feet trying to cross (Allt Phocaichain) so one to avoid after heavy rain."
I've just read that some time before Chris vetted the vetters. Presumably a Challenge from a bygone year.
"Chris we can only hope for some reasonable conditions for Tony to be able to appreciate what would be an excellent Cairngorm experience! "
"A bit of a rough stuff (oooh matron;) today, East of Mount Keen...".
"We liked our virtual ramble along your route..."
