Hardcore Hillwalking – Oh yes… we can still do it!

That final lung bursting final steep ascent...

That final, lung bursting, steep ascent…

  1. Tinto! 🙂 Legs on the mend then? 🙂 I hope that you equipped both the puir wee muppets with crampons and ice axes.

    • I’d love to be able to say yes…but I think, realistically, that the legs are unlikely to be able to take me onto anything substantial anytime soon. I’d hoped to make Hendo’s compleation in Glencoe at the end of the month but that is beginning to look unlikely.

      Tinto must be one of the easiest Grahams with long, steady, gradients and (further up the hill) motorway-like paths – ideal for me though. We did little Dumyat in the Ochils the day before and the right leg “screamed” at me for most of the trip. Nice walk but not one of my happiest I’m afraid 😆 Both hills were perfect for the pups though – not liable to put much stress on their legs.
