Mountain Guiding Eastern Slant, Glencoe

Eastern Slant & North Buttress, Glencoe

With another day of strong westerly winds on the cards, Adele, William and I climbed Eastern Slant on Far East Buttress on Aoanch Dubh, which gave us reasonable shelter from the winds, which were strong enough to repel a few teams heading up to the higher cliffs of Stob Coire nan Lochan.

For Adele and William, it was their first taste of mixed climbing, and although some of the turf wasn’t quite fully frozen, the route lent itself well to our objectives, giving three varied pitches of interesting climbing, with a thought provoking crux chimney right at the end.

Meanwhile, further up the glen, Matt was out with Oli again, and the made their way up North Buttress on Buachaille Etive Mor, which again with it being low down on the mountain, and on a NE aspect, was protected from the worst of the winds.
