(Steve): Simon and I had a great day on East Ridge North Top Stob Ban. This is a great route for teaching alpine skills such as moving together, taking coils and transitioning to pitched climbing. Fitting, that we had blue skies and a strong cool wind for company allowing us super views over the Mamores and towards the Ben.
Meanwhile Hannah and Lena were enjoying a personal climbing day on North Buttress; Buachaille Etive Mor. Given it is a chimney climb, they were fairly sheltered from the wind until the easier ground near the top. She reported the main climbing to be in great nick and although it is a popular route they only shared it with one other team who turned out to be friends of theirs, so a social and successful day for them.
