A 7.00am start was made to complete the Aonach Eagach ridge. A fantastic winter grade II, 10 km ridge. The forecast was for a windless bluebird day and it did not disappoint.
I teamed up with 3 other guys from the hut I was staying in to leave a car at each end of the ridge and we made the early start.
The traverse was from east to west starting in the Pass of Gencoe with Am Bodach the first summit.
The forecast was correct. No wind and sunshine all day, for the most part a cloudless sky.
From Am Bodach we geared up and began the traverse across ’the chancellor’ to reach the summit of our second Munroe Meall Dearg.
Abseil down a pinnacle and the next summit of Stob Coire Leith was reached before a traffic jam on the pinnacles. After the guys in front worked it out we got going around them and finally reached the last summit of the day Sgorr nam Fiannaidh.
Took gear off here and descended via the col back down towards the pass of Glencoe.
A brilliant day out and the weather could not be better. Finished off with a pint or two in the Clachaig.
