Liz Hyslop commented on Jamie’s Facebook post: ‘Wow we met you on the ridge and were wondering how your wee dog managed to scramble on some of the tricky bits – no problems by the looks of it.
Lee Ma wrote: ‘That had me on edge no pun intended, your dog was worrying me so much.What a trooper he or she is.’
Jamie said: ‘To be honest this was a pretty easy climb with Snoop. This is his third time doing it and he’s done it in winter also.’

‘I only had him harnessed up for about ten minutes on the more exposed bits of the climb.
‘The rest he smashed out himself. I heard a good few gasps from people that didn’t expect to see a dog climbing up there.’
He added: ‘He’s ten-years-old and we’ve been climbing for years. I think that’s what keeps him young.’

Best of friends: Jamie and Snoop have taken on more than 70 Scottish mountains above 3,000ft and the treacherous side of the 1,022m Buachaille Etive Mòr, Glencoe, Scotland, in 2017
Last September a mountain rescue team was called out to rescue two climbers who became stuck three-quarters of the way up.
It was the third call Glencoe Mountain Rescue Team had received in two days with a man dying earlier after plunging more than 320ft to his death in the same area. The men were found by the rescuers.
Snoop and Jamie have together conquered more than 70 Munros, Scottish mountains, above 3,000ft.
