Hi subflux I do not profess to know the area that well, but about 5 weeks ago I did Buachaille Etive Mor in Glencoe and must say it was one of the best days out walking i have ever had, great ridges, not too exposed, two Munros ( I think ). I did it after being told by many peolple it was a classic and I could not agree more.
Hello David as for route finding on the corridor route you should have no problems what so ever, also walking this bit with a large rucksack is fine, i have done it a few times myself to wildcamp even with some of wife and sons gear as for where to wildcamp there are places and finding them is half the fun, would not like to find to many people in favourite places so most people keep them to themselves, good luck and have a great time.
No Lee Ray Mears runs off to his trailer which follows him around, he is quite a chubby chap and you don't get like that eating a few grubs and some grass. mind you i have no room to talk could last a week or two on my reserves lol.
Ha I just wander round like a punch drunk heavyweight if i don't have 10kg on my back I must have forgoten something, I am just as knackered and would not worry over a few pounds. I have never really understood the real ultra lightweight debate as myself and most of my friends who wildcamp and indeed most people i meet when out are slackpackers and just enjoy the outdoors for what it is. I don't think most people think every gram is a worry anyway my food weighs more than 5 lbs for 2 days lol.
I have always found the long mountain equipment bags to be more than long and wide enough i am only 6ft 4inch but am 19 stones and fit into my mountain equipment snowline very nicely, and i have room to spare especially length wise.
