A wonderful walk in the best weather for a very long time. There were nine walkers.  The route was done clockwise, eliminating concerns about the river crossing by doing it early in the day.  A steady climb brought us to the double summit of Stoompa, then a grand stroll around the rim of the Gleann. Upon reaching the top of the arête, it was clear that the weather was far too good to be thinking of coming down yet, so we resisted the temptations of Mangerton North and continued to the summit of Mangerton itself. What views we had!  We descended to Bachelor’s Well, where we picked up the return path to our cars.
