Great conditions & strong winds in Glencoe


Ken: For the final day with Will and Andy, we climbed Curved Ridge on Buachaille Etive Mor. Conditions on the route were excellent, so much so that the climbing is almost a little too easy at the moment. We made short work of the ridge, and so decided to make the airy traverse across the top of Rannoch Wall and climbed to the top of Crowberry Tower. The contrast between the well travelled, sun drenched snow on Curved Ridge and the shaded, loose snow on Crowberry Tower was quite noticeable. A great end to three good days with Andy and Will.

Further along Glencoe, Simon, Dave and Steve took a steady walk up to SCNL and climbed the brilliant Dorsal Arete with only one team for company. Conditions are great at the moment with neve starting to form and the compressed snow from passing climbers holding axes well. There is a lot of snow being transported around the mountains on the strong winds.
