Ft Tam. From Bonaly for a change up a very long climb to Harbour and then continued the ridge from there. Both made sure to partake in the tradition of falling down Bell's while fondly reminiscing about times when we watched other people fall down Bell's. Black Hill a little less grim this week with some good chat flowing, but getting a bit cold in a t-shirt as the rain came in. Same way up Turnhouse as last week, musing at the idea of orienteering on the hill before then immediately developing plans to do some orienteering there soon (stay tuned). Up the track and the wall of Castle Law (gurn) and then Allermuir and Capelaw to finish off. Showed Tam the forest fire in Bonaly which - yes you guessed it - is still going strong after two weeks with some actual flames this week. Pentland Power Rangers get your act together! Kicked it a bit and then headed down suitably hungry. Made sure to fill the tank properly at McDonalds afterwards having woken up hungry at 3am last night and gorged down two bowls of cereal.
That's 8 Pentlands trips in a month, knees are feeling quite weak. Need to get back on prehab for this to be sustainable.
