Weather - hot, sunny, blue skies - perfect weather!
After the AE ridge a few days before we were craving another good classic scramble. Curved Ridge had been on the radar for a while.
After an almost disaster parking the car (lets just say you shouldn't drive OVER big massive boulders in a tiny Fiesta!) we headed up to find the water slab. Had a good chat with a couple of nice lads from North Wales off to do Jacob's Ladder on Rannoch Wall.
Roasted and sweaty we arrived at the waterslab and kitted up with helmets and headed up. Scrambling was marvellous, views outstanding. Wee bit of rock fall from folk on route above only downside. Mouthwatering views of the routes and climbers on Rannoch Wall. Wish this route could be longer. Took a detour up onto Crowberry Tower which was awesome. Chilled on the summit for ages. Headed down from Stob Dearg via Coire Na Tulaich which was full of snow, glissaded down the final section and gave ourself hot aches - ouch!
One of those days on the hill you will never forget - what a week; AE and Curved Ridge in perfect conditions, very lucky people we are.
