The day started off very promising for Peter, Geoff, Carl and myself today, as we made the steep ascent up Am Bodach to start the traverse of the Aonach Eagach in Glencoe today. We were treated to great views across Glen Coe, as well as to Ben Nevis and the Mamores to the north and we also passed a herd of wild goats on our way up.
As Peter, Geoff and Carl were all pretty experienced in the mountains, and with conditions being good underfoot, we made good progress, and soloed much of the ridge. The clouds held off for much of our traverse, but closed in after the final section of scrambling, and brought with it a bit of drizzle.
Still, a great day to be out in Glencoe, and a fine accomplishment for Peter, Geoff and Carl. The beauty with completing the Aonach Eagach is that it opens up a world of mountaineering and scrambling possibilities throughout the Highlands and on the Isle of Skye.
