Half way!

Some more (eagerly awaited I'm sure) stats at the half-way stage:

The last 71 hills have contained some real good ones. Some that must be climbed again (with reasons):
Sgurr nan Gillian (was tired last time)
Beinn a'Bheithir (misty)
Beinn a'Ghlo (summit ridge)
Ben Eighe (views)
Sgurr nan Ceathreamhan (good YH)
Sgurr na Ciche (pointed summit)
Sgurr Choinnich Mor (ridge)
Buachaille Etive Mor (misty at top)
Sgor Gaoith (pointy top)
5 Sisters of Kintail (classicness)

Best weather: Sgurr Choinnich Mor or Beinn an Dothaidh
Worst weather: Carn a'Chlamain or Ben Challum
Most freakish weather: Meall Gorm (we couldn't stand up, which was fun)

Tallest climbed: Carn Mor Dearg (1223m, despite reclimbing 3 higher)
Shortest climbed: Beinn Teallach (915m)
'Best' campsite: Meall Gorm (awoke with several inches of snow on the tent)
Most exhillerating: Am Basteir
Best View: Beinn an Dothaidh
Most scary: Sgurr nan Gillian
Most classic: The 5 Sisters of Kintail
Most remote: Carn Ealar
Most desolate: Mullach Clach a'Bhlair
Least deserving to be mentioned in these stats: Sgurr nan Ceannaichean (due to no longer being a Munro)
Best pronunciation: Beinn an Dothaidh (Ben uh Naw-hee) or Shurr nan Ceathreamhan (Skoor nan Kirrinan)
Worst midgies: Sail Chaorainn ("and feast they did")

Number climbed per group size:
On my own: 0
2: 43
3: 7
4: 21
Number of new companions: 8

Longest walk: North Cuillin ridge (14hrs)
Shortest walk: A'Bhuidheanach Bheag (3hrs)
Most efficient: Beinn a'Ghlo (3 Munros in 5hrs 30) or Glen Shee (6 Munros in 8hrs)
