A perfect winter day  Sucess!

Started off at the Car Park near the whitehouse. Beautiful clear skies and cold temperatures. Ascended via the curved ridge route. Began to snow halfway through the climb and descended via the standard walkers route. A perfect day out!

An Ascent in the Clouds  Sucess!

Climbed up this on the summer solstice in fog. A tiring trip, along with an ascent of Stob na Broige down the ridge. My first Munros.

Curved Ridge  Sucess!

Really nice day out, good weather, even little bit too hot. If you are a rock climber don't take the rope, no point to carry it with you all the way up.

Pole bender and other mishaps  Sucess!

With Ken via the normal route up Coire na Tulaich. Very wet with windy conditions from the ridge entry up to Stob Dearg. Descending from the ridge, I slipped down a bit and all the force went onto one of my poles which bent into a banana shape. A rough and ready straightening with a boot was all the remedy required. The heavy rain and high humidity managed to kill both my mobile 'phone and my digital camera in spite of them being tucked inside a 'waterproof' jacket pocket. Unfortunately views were unavailable from the top but from the Kingshouse where we drained off with a pint of sheepshaggers and an excellent bowl of lentil soup we could at least see where we had been earlier.

Several ascents  Sucess!

One of my favourite mountains - climbed several times, mostly via curved ridge - and in 1990 flew from the summit by paraglider. In those days wouldn't have been very many to have done that - a situation which would soon have changed. My last ascent was in 2004.

googly eyed monster  Sucess!

It was a great day to make it up Bauchaille. I've been up to the Glen Coe area many times and the was the 1st time that i saw the sun come out. It was a bonnie day in bonnie Scotland

North Buttress  Sucess!

Climbed via the North Buttress (IV,4). Lower pitches were in summer condition, middle of the route was out of condition with mushy snow and semi-frozen turf. Top of route was in excellent condition. Started route at 10.45am, finished 12.45am! Tough in current conditions but a great mountaineering outing.

Curved Ridge in winter  Sucess!

Great little ridge with fun climbing all the way. We soloed most of it but roped up for some technical steps in the middle of the route. Shrouded in clouds all the way, though, so sadly no summit view.

Young'en

I was 13. DOn't remember if we summitted as I didn't care about things like that then. Just went up the walkers route. Went with my uncle and grandparents. Lots of fun! Would love to go back again.

Route: Curved Ridge  Sucess!

With the weather looking decent and after a warmup up on the CMD at Ben Nevis the day prior I wanted to give this route a try. The Buachaille is without a doubt one of the most beautiful mountains I've ever been on. Fantastic day out scrambling and probably one of the best days I've had in the mountains.

Epic for a hiker!  Sucess!

Nearly killed myself! I was hiking the West Highland Way in Oct and hadn't seen the sun yet, when I got the bright idea to climb the Buachaille. The weather was overcast, but I could see the summit, so I went for it. More clouds rolled in as I reached the summit and it began to rain. Visibility was about 15-20 ft (sorry not in meters) and I ended up descending a very steep and wet gully. Thought I might fall to my death on several occasions. This was all done solo nonetheless. Not smart!!!

Ran up  Sucess!

Midges chased me all the way up from road on a hot summers day , so ran up and down then jumped in the river. Left Julia at road being eaten by midges too!

Perfect  Sucess!

Stayed in the hut at the base for 6 days with the uni mountaineering club, fabulous place. Wake up, step outside the door and you had the most tranquil environment. Spent a day travelling all over this baby, passed some rather beleagured path maintainance guys on the way up. Shame we had to have all the fun! :) Am completely in love with the wilderness of Scotland, even driving from place to place is an absoloute pleasure. Isle of Skye definitely on the things to do list!

Curved Ridge  Sucess!

Almost summer conditions at the end of Jan! Very little snow except the final 200m Curved ridge is a great route and takes in the best aspect of the mountain.

Sat on top in inversion which was great

Dropped my guidebook half way up :-(, anyone seen it ?
