Glen Dye

Horrible day weather wise, but strangely a really enjoyable and satisfying jaunt, i was doing a bit of a recce in the area and decided to have a wander up glen dye to the bothy for a brew before returning,  cant remember how far it was but a decent tab with a good heavy bergan on, the marmot cerro torre and mountain equipment over trousers got a good workout,  very impressed with the jacket, especially the hood, with the wind driving the rain in from all directions it did what was expected of it. Salomon aero s were also impressive after getting thoroughly immersed early on, it was quite hypnotic watching the water getting forced out with every step, the initial dunking was freezing, but within half a dozen steps the feet we're tasty again and stayed like that until I got changed back at the car. Happy with them to, dread putting boots on these days.
