It really was a fantastic day weatherwise and it was one of the best places to be on such a fine day.
As mingsmissus is fairly new to all this she had the tendency to look ahead and see what other people were doing on the ridge but this is understandable.I just got her to focus on each section and break it down into small pieces which she done superbly.
Now that we were on the Pinnacles it was getting a wee bit more exposed but we were moving well with no problems with people in front and behind us at a comfortable distance.
After this section it was onto the second Munro and a few more pics with mingsmissus clicking away at so many fine views.It was then a walkout with the Pap of Glencoe and Lochleven for company before a well earned drink at the Clachaig Inn.

If you don't like the look of the whole ridge you can always do it 'the Mountain Coward' way - see my walk report 'Aonach Eagach for Cowards' - bit more effort but saves the heart attack!

Fantastic photo's. Looks like you got a really good day for the climb.
I'm sooo iching to do this ridge, but persuading my friends would take more effort and be more difficult than the trip itself.
Onwards and Upwards.
