Penelope May and I climbed this wonderful ridge (Scottish winter grade II) on January 30, 2010. Approached via Lairig Eilde valley and up the ridge. Had great conditions on it, clear, sunny day and a hard snow and ice all the way. Descended to the Lost Valley (a bit steep just below the saddle). What a beautiful route and a mountain.
Did the route up Coire Gabhail and continued over Bidean nam Bian and Stob Coire nan Lochan. Took about 8 hours, but this included plenty of stops to admire the fine views all round - especially over the Aonach Eagach to Ben Nevis.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
