Dave: Yesterday Jack and I met Greg, Ben, Eddie and Paul at the Devils Staircase, a place Greg knew well from countless West Highland Way journeys. We headed to the North Face of the Buachaille overlooking Rannoch Moor and ascended Curved Ridge and onto Crowberry Tower, the two teams leap frogged each other taking slightly different lines on our ascent, we reached the summit around noon.
With plenty of time in the day we turned off the descent path and headed for Great Gully Buttress where the team descended some moderate terrain and abseiled down one of slabs, we may have had some heavy showers, but this gave great views with rainbows over the moor. Up and down the North Face and back at the car park for 2:30, plenty of time for the team to grab a pint in the Clachaig Inn.
We finished the two days off with a great meal together at the Indian in Fort William followed by beers in the town. Another brilliant time out with Greg and team, me and Jack are looking forward to our adventures next year possibly in Torridon.
