After a few weeks-long break I managed to go to the hills again. The plan was very ambitious and, as it turned out, too ambitious. Even plan B had to be changed. A pretty steep climbing of the northern slope of Beinn Iutharn Mhor and then a descend through rough terrain in burning heat drained my strength. When I saw in front of me the enormous bulk of An Socach (third planned Munro) with a really steep wall I simply knew I wouldn’t manage. The only option was a return to the car park. The over three hours long walk proved the decision of missing An Socach had been right – the return was agonisingly exhausting.
