Over the past three days, I've been out with Blair, bagging some of the classic scrambles in Lochaber. On Thursday, we went for Curved Ridge, which was largely dry, although once in the clouds, things were a bit damp underfoot. We made our way round onto Crowberry Tower, which tends to be much greasier than Curved Ridge, but still gives some excellent scrambling.
On Friday, we tackled Castle Ridge, which whilst not quite as sustained as Curved Ridge, is definitely a bit trickier. From the top of Carn Dearg, we descended Ledge Route, to give a fantastic circuit.
With rain moving in from the west yesterday, we decided that we would leave the Aonach Eagach for a nicer day. Instead, we took the gondola at Nevis Range and made our way round to the West Face, where we climbed Golden Oldie. Despite it being more popular in winter, it still gives some excellent scrambling in the summer. Just be prepared for quite a bit of steep grass on the approach!
We have a few spaces left on various scrambling days over the next month:
Curved Ridge, Buachaille Etive Mor £99
Aonach Eagach £99
