Great weather for mountaineering today, with all our teams having success on their objectives in better than forecast conditions.
Steve took Vicky and David to the West Face of Aonach Mor and climbed Ruth’s Rib which is a nice accessible climb that goes at about grade II if you stick to the crest. The route is more accessible than the summit ribs and finishes much closer to the gondola making it ideal for a more casual approach. Ken took the other half of the team; Simon and Matt to Glen Nevis where they enjoyed a short scramble on Scimitar Ridge before looking at abseiling techniques to keep themselves safe in the mountains.
Other West Coast Mountain Guides and their participants had success in reaching the summit of Ben Nevis via the mountain path, gaining winter skills on Buachaille Etive Beag, School House Ridge near Ballachulish, Hidden Chimney Direct in the Cairngorms plus the Nid Ridge and Western Rib on Aonach Mor.
