Paula Hamilton-Gibson ?May, 2002 Solo Done over 3 days with 2 bivis in scorching heat.Started from Sligachen up Marsco and despite carrying 4ltrs of water ran out by the top of Blaven.Bivi at Camasunary, round by bad step to the March Burn and up by this to Gars Bhein diverted at TD gap to the spring under Allistair for yet more water! Down climbed all the abseils to avoid having to carry a rope and harness. Lots of stops to soak in the amazing views. An unforgetable experiance!
