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!

Route climbed: Traverse  Sucess!

2nd time here and was just as good as the first time. This mountain has such a wonderful presence about it.

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 ?

Route Climbed: Curved ridge Date Climbed: 10 july 2005  Sucess!

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!

Route Climbed: "January Jigsaw" on the Ranoch Face Date Climbed: June 1998  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Walkers route Date Climbed: April 2001  Sucess!

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?????
