Ramsay recce: The Mamores

A day of heat, of endless summits and blue skies, warm soft peat and glistening quartz, of steep rough descents and steeper climbs, airy summits and arid ridge lines, empty space...
the vast corries of Lochaber, wild and free.
From Kinlochleven I climbed through the birch to meet the broad track to Loch Eilde Mor...
...resting awhile at the ruin which marked the start of the ascent of Sgurr Eilde Mor, just visible a long way below.
Looking down on Coire an Lochain...
...and a little later, on Binnien Beag.
A view of Spink's Ridge - the descent, running clockwise as I intend to, which links the Aonachs to the Grey Corries.
A sea of summits - Na Gruagaichean in the foreground.
The boulder strewn ascent of Binnien Mor, just beneath the summit.
And looking along the ridge toward the last of the day's summits - Stob Coire á Cháirn and An Gearanach, Ben Nevis and the CMD arete in the distance.
