I first read about Dragon and Gob 35 years ago and have wanted to do them ever since . Desire, good climbing, amazing situations, blue skies, good company and a view to die for combined to give one of my best mountain days ever.

5 and 1/2 hours from leaving car to starting 1st pitch. Great route. Led pitches 2 and 4. Followed up by doing Gob which is even better. Walked out the same day.....16 hour round trip.

Had to rest on gear on the crux overhang. Chris fell off on the crucial traverse, luckily, he had just figured out what a back rope was! Marvellous week, went in across Loch Maree, reduces the walk in considerably. Pete Cosgrove & Judith Cressey also on the trip.
