Traverse of Mullach nan Coirean and Stob Ban with Gordon W and Jo.
Led East Ridge, cold, miserable day. Just remember the one very awkward rocky pitch. Stuck behind another rope who were trying to traverse around it. Just went up and over.
Brute force and ignorance what it was, got wedged in the chimney and had to wriggle and dry tool one handed to make it out. Great route, just slow bringing two beginners up. Compasses freezing didn't help either!
C'est la vie.
On top early morning on a 4 day traverse of Ben Nevis and about 2/3 of the Mamore range.
From Glen Nevis then round over Mullach Nan coirean
With Ken, we'd arrived the day before and this was our first top of the week. The weather was foul as it was to be every day but we enjoyed our 1st climb. Having been close some years before when doing 'the ring' I'd hoped to see this outlier but visibility was poor as it was when we had crossed the Devils ridge on snow many years before.
A really nice little mountain. Spyed it from the Achriabhach carpark after a day on the Ring of Steall. From that short glimpse we knew we had to climb it and a couple of days later we did so. Had the summit to ourselves abd only saw a few people on the descent. Highly recommended.
