Beinn a'Chrulaiste via Pink Rib

Date walked: 04/05/2021

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 this wee scramble before.

From the Carpark I headed basically just over the street, a view meter to the east and then over the fence (which had luckily already the barbwire bend down), heading up to the WHW. From here I just went up to the distinct crack next to the pink Rib which I then finally reached after roughly 20 minutes.
The scramble in itself was rather a hike on very good stone steps with 2 wee steeper bits and was unfortunately after ~350 altitude meter over. During the whole hike I was stunned with the amazing views over the Glencoe Valley and the bookie which is in my opinion the best you can get !
After reaching Beinn a'Chrustlaiste a had my lunch, an irnbru and headed the pink Rib back down as I had already further plans for the rest of the day.

A also made a video memory of the trip, nothing pulled into the dramatic just as it is, a nice and easy scramble which is definitely beginner friendly.
