A'Chailleach Southface + Ridge Walk to Am Bodach

After looking through my Scrambles in Lochhaber book and being keen in photography I decided I would give A'Chailleach (Scramble Grade 3**) a try (Cover picture in my 1985 edition). The weather was perfect and a mate wanted to come as well. We parked at the Etive Beag car park, crossed over into the...

Re: Lagangarbh Buttress (Wrong Turn = Climb)

Had me thumbing through an old Glencoe guide book for BEM. The wee book has notes of a visit to three routes on Lagangarbh Buttress in 1964. The book gives the descriptions of 10 plus routes on the Buttress at that time. We only got to three of them. Lagangarbh chimney, Crest route and Bollard slab...

Lagangarbh Buttress (Wrong Turn = Climb)

Had have a day time on my hand and decided to go up the Buachaille Etive Mor via the Lagangarbh Buttress. I have only seen some pictures before hand (I know...but my book was delayed and the weather was perfect) and decided I would give it a go as I really enjoyed the other routes up on the Buachail...

Broad Buttress - Buachaille Etive Mor

I was looking for a short scramble day in Glencoe and thought I would give the Broad Buttress up the Buachaille Etive Mor a try - returning via the curved ridge. I parked at the car park in Altnafeadh, crossed the river by the bridge and followed the path direction curved ridge. When passing the sid...

Sron na Creise - North Ridge + Extended Horseshoe

I parked at the Glen Etive Road and walked down to the bridge where the big parking spaces are and tried to cross the Etive there before heading more or less straight to the foot of the Sron na Creise North Ridge. At the beginning the terrain is rather flat with 2/3 really step steps in it which are...

Aonach Eagach Ridge + Ridge Wild Camp

Well I really had to do it as well... probably the best known ridge in Scotland. What can I add which haven't been already said? In my experience: A)The rock isn't nearly as good as for example by the curved ridge which means if it is wet the well polished rock is really slippy. B) it is by far not ...

Re: Curved Ridge and Crowberry Tower (Front)

Hello....Very pleasant images on your video of the Curved Ridge. I much prefer your use of the stick?, held in front, to enable the video to be made. The videos that I have seen of folks making a recording using a camera fixed to the helmet are not pleasant to watch. I agree with you that the ridge...

Re: Curved Ridge and Crowberry Tower (Front)

That was great thanks, I've now added to the to-do list. How long was you round trip to complete the scramble? John Hi John, it took me up the ridge around 2 hrs and down another 1.5 hrs. Said this on the way down I still had some snow fields in the Corrie which I needed to cross further down on th...

Curved Ridge and Crowberry Tower (Front)

Went last week up the famous curved ridge in Glencoe. I read a lot about it, watched plenty of videos and still thought to myself - well that must be hard/difficult. However after doing it I need to admit it is by far not as difficult/scary as a lot of people say - said this it is probably depending...

Goat Fell - Wintry Hike in May

Goat Fell and the A'Chir Mhore Ridge on the Isle of Arran (Scotland) was the initial plan, however the weather forecast changed and the ferry tickets were already booked and we decided to give it a go anyway - who knows if the forecast is right? It was! We changed our initial plan according to the w...

Beinn a'Chrulaiste via Pink Rib

The weather forecast wasn't so good but I took the gamble and drove up to Glencoe and to my surprise the weather didn't look to bad, cloudy and cold and it should stay dry for the next view hours. So I decided to do the pink Rib up Beinn a'Chrustlaiste from the Jacksonville Carpark as I haven't done...

Campsie Fells: Slackdhu via Green Belt
