Today I settled some unfinished business, by finally climbing Beinn an Dothaidh. Back in 1997 I climbed Taxus, a fine winter route on the mountain, but it was almost dark when we finished, so there was no time to bag the summit. Today I climbed the last 20m from the end of the route, and went on to climb Beinn Dorain and Beinn Achaladair, from where I am about to descend.

Got down and back home safely. Did it "tax us"? Well, Django seemed to run out of energy after 4+ hours but, after wolfing down a small tub of dogfood in about 5 seconds, was back to normal. I'm not so tired, but can tell I've given myself a good work-out!
