Just read your report GLW & all i can say is WOW,that is some crazy looking ridge! The photo's give a really good perspective of the exposure & steepness of the ascents/descents. I did Jack's Rake in the Langdale Pikes in the Lakes a couple of months back which was awesome,but the exposure looks a lot more severe on Aonach Eagach so think i'll have to wait until i can drag one or two of my unsuspecting mates up for company!
