Yet again, the weather turned out to be much better than expected whilst Jason, Mal, John and I climbed Curved Ridge and Crowberry Tower on Buachaille Etive Mor in Glencoe today.
When I woke up, the weather was living up to the forecasts, with very heavy rain and thick cloud down to low levels, but it soon brightened up and soon after leaving the car, the waterproofs were stowed away. Whilst we had the odd bit of drizzle through the day, it wasn't enough to dig the waterproofs back out.
What this meant was that we enjoyed a largely dry ascent of Curved Ridge and then made the exposed traverse over to the foot of Crowberry Tower, which we climbed in two pitches before then making our way to the summit of Buachaille Etive Mor.
Jude also joined us today and was out observing, in preparation for her Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor assessment, which she has coming up later this season.
