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 ?
went up via curved ridge which was a lot of fun. Then traversed to the next munro at the other end of the main ridge up top. Descended towards Glen etive from here and the so called green gully as we had left a car there. Although this descent looks ok from the bottom, it is quite nightmarish as it is basically a boulder field covered in grass and ferns! Tricky. Overall an amazing day out!
Moved onto Agag's after two pitches when snow and sleet set in; on to Crowberry Tower and then to summit.
Wonderful day in the hills.
Better than the south downs
Nice climb, scrambling, some climbing finish in steep snow.
Beautiful, but not too easy finding route.
Climbed this route with a friend and then scrambled to the summit. It was my first multi pitch climb and one of the climbs that got me interested in mountaineering.
What an excellent mountain! we only intended on walking around the foot of the cliff but the weather picked up so we climbed to the summit! It was good fun in the snow, which got very wet later. Didnt have time for a full traverse of the ridge. I will definitely traverse the ridge in another winter, and a route up those impressive cliffs is a definite. IS GLEN COE INCREDIBLE OR WHAT?????
From car park at Alltnafeadh, up Coire na Tulaich to summit. Traversed ridge and dropped down to Lairig Gartain. Misty start, burnt off on summit, but remained hazy all day.
