We were accompanied (or led) by our good friends, Barbara and David this week. The Cobbler (or now known by us all as 'Cobbler, the Bobble Gobbler due to Lynne beginning with hair bobbles and returning without them) is outlined in the top right-hand corner of the opposite picture.
The Cobbler is just short of 'Munro' status - so its classification is a Corbett. It was still going to be the highest of all our peaks so far and, on first glance, it looked slightly terrifying.
To some, we didn't completely conquer The Cobbler. The black and white photo of the guy standing on top of the protruding rock is not Andrew - although we did wonder about doing a little bit of photo-shopping 😉. However, we did make it across to that rock and both of us climbed into the 'Eye of the Needle'. To reach the highest point on the top you need to climb right through the eye of the needle, onto the narrow ledge outside (with a 100ft sheer drop), navigate around to the back and climb up. Not something we felt capable of doing (yet) without security ropes and crash helmets. There have been many fatal casualties here over the years.
Nevertheless, an absolutely brilliant day. Thank you, Barbara and David! 😀

We are Lynne and Andrew from Single Steps Learning. Our love of learning and exploring has inspired us to take up 'hill-walking'. We hope to progress from novice to expert! This is our journey.
