Re: Where's the least bad weather tomorrow Sat 14th Sept?

Coop wrote:Probably most places south of the central belt " look to be dry tomorrow". No scrambling involved but the Merrick circuit or white coomb circuit are half decent walks


Cheers Coop :wink:

Where's the least bad weather tomorrow Sat 14th Sept?

Just typical! I get an opportunity for one wee day away (work, wife, kid, etc etc) and the weather looks utterly horrible. As far as a mountain day goes (non-munro specific) where looks to be the best bet? Ideally a scramble would be involved. And not more than a couple hours drive from the central ...

Re: Buachaille Etive Mor via Curved Ridge & Great Gully Butt

Great report, liked your pictures. Done Curved Ridge a couple of dozen times but never thought of going down GGB. Also done the false start up D Gully buttress - you can traverse right over to CR from below the first hard pitch but it’s a faff, esp since it’s probably wet (or you would have seen wh...

Re: Family Walk

Brilliant :) Always great to see happy wee smillie faces at a summit cairn - well done to them :clap: Great hills for families and wee ones. I took my wife and daughter up there one lovely summers day - passing the zorb ball was a spectacle. And it does get a bit steep up the shoulder, which is grea...

Re: Plan B: Tower Ridge

Hope that I can add a bit to the Question of comparing Tower Ridge with Observatory Ridge....Have only done Observatory using the direct start that is supposed to be a touch harder than the normal route. Same as for NE Buttress using the direct Arete route of Raeburn that he did in 1902. Of all the...

Re: Plan B: Tower Ridge

Wow! :D That is a fantastic report! :clap: You must have been knackered after all that :lol: I was up the CMD again in June - taking my nephew on his first outing. While on the summit plateau, I had a really good look at Tower Ridge and the gap for a future trip. This report will be invaluable for i...

Re: Buachaille Etive Mor via Curved Ridge & Great Gully Butt

Nice one; a top notch scramble. :clap: Are you still planning to do Agag's? You maybe got a good look at it from CR? Hi dav2930. I certainly am mate. And I did get a really good look at Agags too, thanks. I actually did Curved Ridge again on Saturday there, on my own this time, and did a more thoro...

Buachaille Etive Mor via Curved Ridge & Great Gully Buttress

**VIDEO BELOW**Anyone interested in Great Gully Buttress should watch as there doesn't seem to be much footage of it around** With work/life balance being more work and less life for a while, this was to be our first outing in months. So my brother and I decided to make it a good one and take a tri...

Re: Favourite/ least favourite mountain

Favourite for the moment is BEM via Curved Ridge.
Least favourite is Ben Vorlich (Loch Earn) via usual path up.

I don't tend to do hills. I prefer to do routes rather than hills. So I keep doing the same hills, but by different routes. And not always to the summit. I'm a weirdo :wtf:

Re: Snow on the Carn Mor Dearg Arete?

I was there on Saturday (May 11th) and it was fine. Some thin patches here and there but nothing to worry about.
Have a great time :thumbup:

Re: Mental face

Good stuff :wink:
I had a mini-epic myself up S'a'C not so long ago. This report brought back memories. It's a nice scramble if you're mentally prepared for some awkward moves. If not though like you said, it's a bit mental :thumbup:
